Wind Blowing Leaves

Hi, today I would like to share with you a card I designed for the challenge at Joan's Garden.
Selma, her card designer challenged us to make a project using
Striped dp
brads or pearls
A Fall image JustRite if you have one and I don't .
Since I don't have a Fall JustRite image, I tapped into my Gina K Designs stash.
I picked one of my favorite sets illustrated by Theresa, Autumn Blessing.
I inked up the pumpkins with Memento Black, masked them off and stamped the wheelbarrow. Colored both with copics. Pierced my paper with swirls, stamped colored and cut out five of the small leaves in the set. Sponged some color in the sky and grass. Placed the leaves on the "wind", ground and in the barrel. Covered the pumpkins and leaves with stickles. I didn't want to use a spellbinder shape as I wanted some soft curves to go with the blowing wind. I think it's OK. I added three small brads to the tab. A bow 1st one made with bow easy.
Have a great day and thanks for looking.

Colleen, great card. I love how you used the swirls to draw attention to the leaves. Great job.
