Falling leaves

Had a card to make for my hubby's 75year old uncle. He loves the read the Irish news but always falls asleep so this image from the Digi Stamp Boutique was jut perfect.
I had a small piece of lovely leaf paper in my scrap box so I added some brown and striped paper and cut some extra leaves from the paper and ultra embossed them. They look and feel really nice in real life. His name was cut using Tim Holtz alphabet cutter.
I am entering this into these challenges
City crafter Challenge - Autumn falling leaves
Party Time Tuesdays - carrot cake colour challenge
Double Dutch - fall has fallen
Digi Stamp Boutique - November challenge
