The Movement Challenge

Hello, friends!  I have been feeling a little under the weather, physically, but I'm feeling much better now.   Lately I have really opened myself to appreciating the blessings in my life.  There is so much to be thankful for and I thought to myself: Why wait until Thanksgiving to show appreciation?  So I made this card for MoxieFab's Movement Challenge

If I understood correctly, movement starts with the focal image, in this case the oval with the trees.  From the trees, the eye (at least mine!) moves to the right, towards the leaves, which also makes me notice the embossed background.  The bottom leaf points to the sentiment and then the eye comes full circle to the trees.  

Instead of coloring the trees, I sponged autumn colors on white card stock and then stamped the images.    Last, I cutout the images to paper-piece the trees and arrange the leaves beside the oval.
