Perfect Sentiments: "Clean and Simple Fall"

It's Wednesday and that means time for another challenge at The Perfect Sentiment!!
This week our challenge is "Clean and Simple Fall"
The challenge: create a card with a sentiment for fall or Thanksgiving
The twist: make it clean and simple
Here is the card I made for the challenge:
I made the card 4 1/2"x6 1/4" from a brown cardstock.  I trimmed some golden colored cardstock at 4 3/8"x6 1/8."  I cut some more brown cardstock at 4 1/8"x5 7/8."  I then cut some shimmery ivory cardstock at 4"x5 3/4" and then embossed it with the Tim Holtz embossing folder called Thankful Print, by Sizzix.  I cut a strip of brown cardstock at 4 1/8"x2 1/2"  I cut some gold cardstock at 4"x2 3/8."  I used Autumn Celebrations to cut the sentiment at 2 1/4."  I added burgundy and cinnamon Stickles to the red swirl and the word "grateful."  I also added some glossy accents to the word "be."  I used a Marvy Uchida punch for the maple leaf, which I covered with crackle accents and adhered to the card with pop-dots.  Nice and easy! 
Now it is your turn to create a clean and simple fall card.  Be sure to link it up at The Perfect Sentiment.  I can't wait to see what you create!
