Thankful in Gold

Today as I type this, my husband is outside painting our house (navy blue!  taking a chance!) and the leaves are falling all around.  At times it almost sounds like it is raining.  I had to put on a long sleeve shirt because it was cooler than I thought!  It's definitely (finally) feeling like Fall in Kansas!

So what is more appropriate on a day like today than a Fall card, right?

This one is so incredibly simple but I really like it & it's going to a special person.  

I used one of the Lil' Inker Designs stitched Leaf Love Dies to cut out the leaf shape.  I stamped the sentiment from the coordinating stamp set Leafy Greetings in Versamark Ink & then embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I covered the end of the stem in the VersaMark ink and dipped it in the gold embossing powder.

To finish the card off I used a piece of gold striped metallic paper and added a piece of Gold Shimmer Twine around the bottom.

I'm entering this card in the SSS: Monday Challenge Throwback.  I am using the Autumn is in the Air challenge from Oct 5th.

Thank you for stopping by today!
