Fall Card 2017 elements

Whoohoo! My 2017 fall card is ready to print. A successful illustration should be seamless, appearing as a cohesive image rather than an assemblage. However, looking at the elements individually can be an interesting exercise. Also, this approach helps me to stay on track and avoid becoming overwhelmed.
