Harvest Berry Thank You

***This is my 2nd post of the day.  Please click here for my Tuesday Trigger/4 Crafty Chicks post!***

The solar lights are set up (way easier than I expected), the dogs are swum and dinner is on the stove!  Luis is feeding the hounds while I type this up and then they are sure to conk out.  Tired dogs = peaceful evening.  :)  
The card is my entry for The Colour Throwdown.  I got the Harvest Berries stamps and dies in my last PTI order and am finally putting them to use after seeing them everywhere.  They really are pretty versatile.  Hoe you all had a lovely weekend!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Cream) Pacon, (Basic Grey, So Saffron) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Leaves from Harvest Berries, Label and sentiment from Mat Stack 1 Collection) PTI
Ink:  (Basic Grey, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Harvest Berries, Mat Stack 1) PTI

In our house, sleeping cat = peaceful evening, so I hear you! I really like how you've pulled part of the ginkgo (?) die forward over the label; such a dramatic look!
