Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

This is my third and final card for WORLD CARD MAKING DAY. I'm entering it in the Lawnscape Challenge 

All about the Sentiment

The top panel was made with a Hero Arts Stencil and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink (sponged on.) The leaves are a Lawn Fawn die onto which I applied Gold Modellier Creme. Sandy Allnock's Go For the Gold class demonstrated how to use this paste, and I also used it on the card base to add gold around the edge. For added sparkle the leaves were sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine Gold spray. The branches are a Memory Box die cut from black card stock. The sentiment is "Vintage Happy Thanksgiving" die from Poppy Stamps.

Here's a close up of the leaves, which are a bit shiny. Hard to tell with my camera!
