Autumn Leaves

I know its September but it doesn't feel a lot like Autumn to me, we're having strange weather, extremely hot one day, cold and windy the next, hot again yesterday and today much cooler,very heavy rain overnight and this morning but brightening up now, weather report over ! back to my card, seems to be a lot of challenges for Autumn/leaves/ Fall etc so thought I'd make a card using my Inkylicious leaves and stencils but somehow ended up using Stampin Up French Foliage instead.The die cut letters and leaf are from Die Cutting Magazine which I've never bought before as I think it's too expensive but could not resist the dies and embossing folder as they surely are worth the cost of the magazine ? I'd like to enter these challenges
