IO Challenge- Favorite Quote

Today the Impression Obsession challenge is all about favorite quotes. I really love this saying (If You are Grateful C3541) and think it would make nice Thanksgiving cards:

To make this card, I used the brand new Leaves dies (DIE030-S) to cut out a mask using Eclipse Tape.  I then layered my mask onto some speckled tan cardstock:

Next, I sponged some yellow, orange, and purple ink onto my card:

To add some interest to the leaves, I stamped the Love Letter (J8778) script on top of the leaves using brown ink:

I removed the mask, stamped my saying, and layered the pieces of the card.  My sponge had a little gold Shimmer Spritz on it, so the leaves had a nice sparkle to them.

Need more quote inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, Kittie, and Vicki created. Want to play along? You can find all the information here, and you could even win a $25 IO gift certificate!
