Leaves Are Falling

We have had some wonderful weather in October and the Autumn colors have been spectacular but now the trees are looking a bit bare and soon all the glorious color will be gone.  I'm hanging on to the Autumn colors in my house and on my cards until Thanksgiving Day (even if there aren't any leaves left on the trees!)
This card is not necessarily a Thanksgiving Day card but it is a great reminder to always be thankful and to be giving.

I used a Stamploration stencil and Oxide inks for the background.  The sentiment is a Stamploration stamp.  With the help of my Misti I stamped it several times in Chocolate Brown and then stamped it again with Versamark so I could emboss over the brown with clear embossing powder.
The panel and the brown cardstock behind it are cut with  Stamploration wavy stitched dies.  I didn't plan on using all those products from that store but obviously I do like them! and use them a lot.  (Maybe I should get an advertising commission - haha)
My card is a CASE of Deepti's card.  I love her work.
