Feels Like Fall Leaves Card

Based on a fun challenge, I created this Fall card.  I decided to do both the color and the sketch with this card... Thanks YNS for the awesome fun challenge... so glad I recently found your site!!!
I embossed the base layer of the card with the basket weave folder by Darice, plus I inked the edges with brown pigment ink.  Using my spellbinders labels Twenty-Three dies I cut out the two pattern paper shapes from my Fall scraps... I then used my SNC2 to cut out a brown shadow layer for each shape.  I used one of my button dies that came in a set of six to cut out the three buttons in different Fall colored scraps of card stock.  I then used my SNC2 to cut out a brown shadow Layer for those as well.  Before adhering them together I ran brown and white bakers twine through the button holes and tied a knot for each.  I used two different leaf dies that I also dry embossed and sprayed with glimmer mist to bring out the embossing in a shimmery copper tone.  For the stamping I used an old stamp from a cardmaker set I believe and colored the leaves in with my spectrum noir markers, after backing with the brown shadow Layer I popped the sentiment shape up on foam squares.
For the inside I found a piece of Fall leaves pattern paper in my Fall Scraps bin and used the same spellbinders die as the front to cut it out.  I used brown pigment ink to ink around the edges.  I decided to do my stamping directly onto the green leaf inside and used stamps from Desert craftin divas - Hey Pumpkin stamp set.  I stamped both sentiments in a brown pigment ink.  I then stamped the autumn greetings again over the top of the brown with wild honey distress ink using my presicion stamp press from we R memory keepers.
