Thanks and Gratitude

This is the first card I have made with my new Spellbinder double embossing folder.  I love the two designs in one folder.   I inked the folder before running it through my Cuttlebug and really like the results.
 I used the sketch at MFT:
Leaves are SU, sentiment is Unity.
I tried backing the sentiment strip but ended up just sponging color on the edges.
