I must mention that this die has awesome details. They allow me to apply "Inlaid Die-cutting" with the gold Foil Card stock.

Your Thanksgiving card is so gorgeous. I think it is one of the prettiest I have seen. It is so elegant and would be a lovely decoration, as well as, a lovely card! I guess I am into fall as my other favorite is your grape leaves card. I love the inlaid die cutting with the gold foil card stock. It really adds that touch of class as do the gold sequins and the gold thread.

I love seeing the results of your creative mind. I think my favorite is the first one where you mirrored the colors in the leaves in the outline stamping. That plus the gold die cut outlines is absolutely gorgeous. But also, the green colors for the poinsettia are so perfect to create an unexpected flower.
