Ok enough mush...time to share my card
I used Kraft card stock as my base
CI Paints~ Deliquesce Clear Embossing powder over Tim Holtz
Gathered Twigs Distress ink
My Creative Time~Piles of Smiles sentiment stamp 
Here is a close-up of the sentiment and leaves.
Those leaves are also from

I die cut 3 of them in different color PTI cardstock
then used CI Paints in Sunshine, Evergreen and Pumpkin
to give them some shimmer and sparkle.
