Pilin' on more Leaves

click to enlarge
The theme this week at Pile It On is Leaves. I made a Thanksgiving card with an image from our sponsor, Eureka Stamps, but I also stepped in for a teamie and made a Thank-you card using their Open Maple Leaf digi stamp.

I colored the image with Wink of Stella glitter pens and Copics. The acorns are premade with the gold glitter tops, but I heat-embossed the bottoms with copper powder. The squirrel & sentiment are wood embellishments; I colored the "thanks" with a gold Wink of Stella pen, but kept the squirrel as-is. The sheer yellow ribbon and orange glitter paper are from my stash. The card base is a shiny gold paper.

It's a lovely day here in Baltimore, with plenty of leaves & squirrels to enjoy!
