Maple Leaf Thanksgiving Card

Hello! It seems another weekend has flown by and World Card Making Day has come and gone. This Maple Leaf Thanksgiving Card was my World Card Making Day creation. The layout comes from the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary. I kept the card simple because I didn't want to distract any attention from the glossy Maple Leaf. The plaid paper is from the Sweater Weather dsp (132184) by Stampin' Up! and the maple leaf was cut using the Big Shot and the Autumn Accents Bigz die (127812). The final touches were the Crushed Curry Candy Dots, white twine, and the Thanksgiving sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748, wood). Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My Maple Leaf Thanksgiving Card is entered into the following challenges:
