Autumn leaf inspiration

The weather has finally turned very chilly and the leaves are beginning to fall now. I took these photos last week to show the awesome autumnal leaves I have witnessed this year. I am so very lucky where I live, just 10 miles from London but in a very pretty suburb. The local lake glowed with the colours. 

I still visit my dino ducks (Egyptian geese) regularly and feed them. They are just a total delight.
 who can resist this face?

Inspired by these colours around me I made my November artist trading coins for the swap I take part in.
I make 5; 3 for the swap, 1 for Daisy and 1 to keep for reference.
I made some quick inky backgrounds
and stamped the small Visible Image Erika's Maple leaf onto some inky mop up card. Some I added some texture to with a little crackle and some little dew drops of sparkle using Glossy Accents. I also added some of the tiny leaves to the coins and a sentiment.
Here they are;
 with a couple in close up.

The style of the type face with this stamp set is just perfect for creating leafy scenes.

I would like to enter my coins into the following challenges;

Mix it up 5/5 anything goes
