Time for another challenge!

The Essentials by Ellen October Pin-Sights Challenge inspired me with the color palette.

I watercolored in green, yellow, orange, brown, red, and gold. After that dried, I die cut with the leaves from Bold Blooms Matching Dies. I adhered them to a cream page, added a copper layer, and a sentiment banner. The sentiment is Hero Arts, but I purchased it from Ellen Hutson. I hope that is OK for the challenge.

Here is my watercoloring:
