Falling Leaves!

What is a stampers greatest tool for ideas......the "Idea Book & Catalog" of course. I found this cute Thanksgiving card on page 29 of the catalog. I used the same background color and 2 layers but added my own twist of course:

Instead of using VersaMark ink only on the second panel, I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder along with the VersaMark. See the glittery effect below:

I also added some hand-cut leaves from the "Falling Leaves Stamp Set". I have this card sitting in my guest bathroom on a small cabinet that sits besides the flush.....something to look at! My bathroom is blue so I thought the card would look pretty sitting in there!
