Deedee's Digis DOM "Leaf Your Cares Behind" Card

This month over at Deedee's Digis, the progressive monthly challenge set has 2 darling images of elephants playing in the leaves. She's also included some wonderful sentiments. I love puns and was delighted to use this "Autumn is the perfect time to 'leaf' your cares behind" sentiment.
The card base is an A2 shimmery light yellow card, and I sized up my image and sentiment to fit on that. I didn't have to digitally or hand color the image since Deedee includes the color images each month. So nice! I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to size and group together the image and sentiment and then printed them out. I die cut them using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 28. Then I used foam tape to adhere that to my mat which I had cut out using Spellbinders Divine Eloquence. I die cut a few leaves from watercolor paper I had previously watercolored using Twinkling H2Os autumn colors (the dies are from Our Daily Bread Fall Leaf and Acorn die set).
