Guesting at Color Throwdown - week 2

Hello!  Hope you had a chance to play along with last week's Color Throwdown.  I'm stopping in with my card for this week's CTD.  The colors are the beautiful autumnal colors of red, yellow and brown.   Of course I went with a leaf theme, lol!   This time I used the dies from Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves bundle.   I had one panel I had created using alcohol inks and this one happened to have all the colors for this week's challenge!  YAY!  I die cut the leaf from the alcohol using the die that cuts the solid image along with the interior die that turns it into a skeleton-type leaf.  I then die cut a solid leaf from brown cardstock and then adhered the two leaves together slightly offset.  I die cut the thank you (C9 Bitty Thank You die set) from yellow cardstock several times and adhered them together.  I die cut some off white cardstock with a rectangle die and then adhered the leaf to the panel.   The words thank you was then adhered on top of the leaf.   I finished by adding a few red enamel dots.  I will be posting this to the current Fab Friday challenge as my layout is based on their fun sketch and to the Paper Players as their theme this week is grateful/thankful.  Below is all the information regarding playing along with this week's CTD challenge.  All die cutting was done with my Gemini Jr. die cutting machine.  (Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.  I truly appreciate it if you do decide to use my links.)
