Double D - LEAVE it to Me

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D it's Team Darlene's turn, and the challenge is LEAVES. Use leaves on your project.
Just look at this luscious Mood Board provided for your inspiration! Is it not gorgeous??

So here's my card:
As you can tell, this is a birthday card for my dad. He is turning 99!!! I'm so thankful to still have him with me. This design has been CASED from some cards that Angie Cimbalo made recently. You can see them HERE. I thought her cards were just beautiful and I had to copy them. I have used a copper laminate which comes in a roll, think Contac Paper. I stuck it to a piece of card stock and dry embossed the panel. I think my dad will like it.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx & White Card
Darice Basketweave EF
Darice Fall Leaf EF
SU Dragonfly Dreams for Greeting
SU Seasonal Layers Thinlits for Leaves
Deco Metallic Laminate 
Die Cut Letters by Art C

Please come on over to the Double D Blog to see what the other designers have created. And you could win this awesome prize if you play along.
 Oh, and thanks for stopping by, your comments always make me smile.
