With this card I simply added a piece of Night of Navy cardstock behind the birds and then topped the Leaf Label (#159969, which includes 50 Amber Gems and 25 sturdy die cut leaves from kraft paper) with a bit of Linen Thread. I love it when Stampin' Up! does the work for me-- these will be used a lot this fall in all my classes!
The sentiment is from my new favorite all occasion set called Very Best Occasions (#159871, $25). I love it so much I am featuring it across 12 cards in my Holiday Catalog Paper Party (see details below)! It has Christmas, gratitude, birthday, sympathy, miss you, and other sentiments all wrapped in one nice set!
