A card for the 1st 'Card Chain Challenge'

Hi, everyone!,
 I knew the Card Chain Challenge (CCC) of 'Society of Stamp & Scrap-aholics'
3 days ago. I entried it a few hours before the deadline, and finished a card yesterday night.
 This brandnew challenge is hosted by dearest Deborah. You can see the details and rules of it from here.
The participants make a card and send it to the other participant. So everybody gets a card from someone! Wonderful planning! She is so clever!

こんばんは♪ 今回のカードは、'Society of Stamp & Scrap-aholics'のDeborahさんが始めた新規企画のチャレンジ用に作ったものです。
このチャレンジ、通常のチャレンジとはかなり違い、『参加者はそれぞれ1枚のカードを作り、別の参加者に郵便で送る - 参加者全員が、必ず1枚のカードを受け取る!』というものです。 とても良い企画だと思いませんか?
*今後も企画は続くと思いますので、参加ご希望の方は、私に連絡をくださーい! (メーカーさん等のチャレンジとは違い、使用する材料に関する制限は今回はありませんでした。チャレンジのテーマにもよるとは思いますが、おそらく今後も・・だと思います。)

Here is the card, 'Fall is in the air'.
I made this one to get an imagination from both my 'happy fall' card which I made it on Sep. 12th and the color scheme that Deborah was made. I love this color combo so much.
I changed to make this to bright colors taking on the color scheme.
To send this to abroad, I used 1/16" thick foam adhesives and die-cutted idea-ology grungesheet alphabets (I used 1/8" thick foam and the grungeboard letters for my 'happy fall' card.)
To tell you the truth, the previous card was too thick and it's too hard to put into the HA envelope.

This is a closeup.

and one more closeup taken from another angle.

Can you see the Perfect Pearls on the veins of a leaf?
The results using Perfect Pearls (Mica Powder) is really beautiful! I love it! But it's TOO difficult to take picture...
