The theme for Dies R Us Challenge #60 is Thankful for Nature. It's always nice to have a stash of Thank You cards on hand. I used some paper from DCWV's The Guilded Orchard. I used a Gina Marie Designs die to cut the leaf. I cut it from some red DP and also from the light colored DP. I embedded the red leaf in the negative space created by the leaf that was cut from the light colored DP. I mounted the light colored panel onto a gold foil card. The "THANKS" was cut with a Memory Box die out of a glittered gold foam sheet. I added this to a red banner that I cut free-hand. The flourishes behind the banner were cut from the gold foam sheet with dies from Marianne Creatables. I fussy cut the tiny bird and added it to the leaf stem. I highlighted the flowers and bird with a clear Wink of Stella pen and added gems to the flower centers.
