Metallic Leaves Thanksgiving Card

I’ve been searching for a leaf stamp set or set of leaf dies for several years now. Being very picky about what I want. In September, My Favorite Things released the Falling Leaves die set. Perfect!!

I cut my leaves out of Brushed Gold and Stardream Copper cardstocks. I thought about adding sequins, but I decided against it. I am not sure if the non-crafting population is so in love with sequins as we crafters are!  😉

Here is a close up of the shimmer:
