Hubby's BD Card

Quick post as hubby is raking leaves & I'm the picker upper!  My friend, Betty, reminded me about the Joseph's Coat technique which I haven't done in ages.  Thought it'd be perfect for hubby's BD card which I need this month.  I used Impression Obsession products Collage Leaf 5, Greetings Top Edgers & Large Bird on Branch. 
I covered a panel of cardstock with a variety of Distress Inks in Fall Colors.  Then I clear embossed the leaf randomly across the panel.  When it was cool, I sponged on DI gathered twigs & wiped the ink off the images.  Isn't it beautiful?  The bird branch die cut was covered with multiple layers of gold embossing powder, so it almost looks like a metal embellishment.  The sentiment was covered with gathered twigs DI & clear embossed.  I know it looks like Fall, but usually hubby's card is wintry looking & I wanted something different.  I love these leaves--not so much the ones waiting for me outside--haha!  I'm entering IO Autumn ColorsSSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.
