Happy Autumn

This is my second post today so please scroll down to see the previous post.  I have created this card for the For Fun Challenge Blog.  The challenge is anything with leaves.  I am awaiting the last of the leaves to fall of our trees so I can rake.  I am praying the snow holds off until I can get this done (It's on the tops of the mountains around us).  I just love leaves, and the sound they make as you walk through them and as the wind whisks them along the driveway.  I chose this wonderful digi from Di's Digi Downloads and coupled it with a great sentiment (from which the leaves are a part) from Michelle Perkett's Studio (and it's free).  The dots on the paper inspired me to add some paper piercing for a border around the image and a slight touch to the sentiment.  The little bear is so adorable he just makes the card smile!
I'm also going to enter this card in One Crazy Stamper's challenge -halloween or fall
Stamps:  Teddy Pumpkin- Di's Digi Downloads; Sentiment from Michelle Perkett's Studio
