Post #1: Fall Banner for Stuck on You Sketches!

Today, Stuck on You Sketches has an autumn themed die cut challenge!
I made a banner---I really love banners lately.
Here it is:
It's a little hard to see the first and last letters, so I will let you know it says "Give Thanks".
It's fall themed---it'll hang in my house until Thanksgiving!
I had a lot of fun adding little details to each part, and I used all sorts of stuff from Michael's Recollections line, some My Mind's Eye, Stampin' Up, and Close to my heart.
Here are some closeups.  The maple and oak leaves that I used were cut with my new silhouette, and for some reason, I loved the hint of aqua with the other warm fall colors.
I also used a scalloped circle Sizzix die to cut these pieces of burlap.  I didn't stiffen the burlap first so the edges frayed a little, but it's ok, it feels rustic!  And, what's a project without sequins?
Another little touch of aqua...
And finally, a die cut oak leaf!  You can see I did some stamping too!
There's my fall themed die cut project!  Head on over to Stuck on You Sketches to link up your project and for full details!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Stay tuned for some exciting news and another reveal---
