So thankful that our family Thanksgiving celebration is passing to the next generation. My niece has a new house and wants to host the gathering this year. Yipee! I only have to show up with desserts in hand. So I will take her a housewarming/thank you gift with this thank you card attached.
I live in southern Indiana where we have forests of oak trees that put on a beautiful show every fall. I stamped this oak leaf in light green and cut it out. Then I sponged on red, orange, and gold. To give the leaf a shiny texture, I sprayed on Glitter Dust. The DP, label punch, and burlap ribbon are from SU. The sentiment is an old Inkadinkadoo stamp. Here is a close up to show the colors of the leaf. I think it looks very realistic.
I followed this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches


  1. You are absolutely right, that leaf looks extremely realistic! I love how it's got some shimmer to it too! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This is just gorgeous. Beautiful details and I agree - that leaf is totally realistic and amazing. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!

  3. Isn't it great when the younger generation takes over at holiday time. I'm still waiting for that to happen!
