So Very Thankful

Hello all! Today I am sharing a card I made to enter into The Card Concept and Stencil Fun Challenges for this month:
I was inspired by the colors and leaves of gorgeous trees in The Card Concept Inspiration Photo for this Clean & Layered card.
I started with the Maple Leaves Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I am on the Design Team for A Colorful Life Designs. It is a woman owned, small business out of Texas. The owner and designer, May Kay DelaFuente has so many wonderful stencils! If you'd like to check out her shop and received a discount use my code  AnitaFan10 for 10% off your entire purchase (excluding bundles). Here is the image of the 6" X 6" stencil I used for this card from the Mary Kay's website:
I ink blended onto a 6" X 6" panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with fall colors of  Ranger Ink's Distress Ink colors. I did cut the panel down so that there would be a nice white border all around. I tried to show the amazing sparkle of the sentiment from this angle:
The center focal point was cut from gold glitter cardstock using Sizzix's Ornate Labels #659711 by Lori Whitlock. It is soon to be discontinued and at this writing on sale for $3.45! It is a 12 piece Thinlit set which I have used so many times!
The So Very Thankful sentiment is from The Stamp Market called Pretty Pumpkin, retired. And the fun, snarky sub-sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp called Sassy Thankful.
Thank you for joining me for this quick fall themed stencil card! I will also be submitting to NBUS:
