TH Leaf thank you Card

Created this thank you Card using new to my stash Tim Holtz Leaf stamp & Sizzix Framelits set. I like how this turned out. The photo does not do the distressing & inks justice. TH does not have a Happy Thanksgiving sentiment and I wish he did. Each of these stamp sets come w/ a sentiment and this one came with 'life moments' sentiment that I already have as part of the TH Simple Sayings but a sentiment Framelit is included in this set. I used the 'thank you' sentiment from TH Simple Sayings.

The Leaf is stamped multiple times on different TH core'dinations cardstock which I have been hoarding & hanging onto for quite some time & cut w/ the Framelits. Pieces are placed over the framing layer with adhesive near the center of the Leaf so that the Leaf can be popped up on both left & right sides for dimension.

ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
ribbon: Spool O' Ribbon brown

   Distress Inks -  crushed olive, spiced marmalade, walnut stain, wild honey,
   paper distresser, sander,
