I'm just beginning to contemplate using foil on my paper products so this is very apropos!!! Very timely indeed! This is a stunning card. I love the layering, the sentiment, the depth given with the foam leaves and of course the gold and copper foil used to cover the leaves. I'm like the artist...something about gold and copper always makes me think autumn!!!
