Shabby Autumn leaves - Option for QKR Stampede Anything Goes challenge #264

I have several images featuring trees, but this is the only one with a grin!  All the leaves meet the option for the Anything Goes challenge for QKR Stampede - Autumn Leaves.  Remember, using the option is up to you.  The image is called Old Tree, and the sentiment is also from QKR Stampede.  The pattern paper is from a Fall Stack by DCWV.  I colored the leaves and tree trunk using water color pencils (quite a few colors!) and my aqua brush.  I added to the shabby look by distressing the edges.  The oval dies are from Spellbinders.
Inspiration - colors and trees (at left):    Victorine
