Clustered Leaves Thanks

I used the new Simon Says Stamp Outline Clustered Leaves die and the Clustered Leaves die,  to make a rainbow leafed thank you card...
I die cut the outline and then a whole leaf die cut.  I adhered them together, then went to town, die cutting the colored leaves.  I used the Sunny Studio rainbow stripes paper(LOVE this paper!!), LOVE how many wonderful colors are in this pack, being intentional about the direction of the stripes for each leaf.  I adhered the leaves to the two die cuts already put together, then, when finished with all the colored leaves, adhered another two outline die cuts over the colored leaves.  I used the Simon Deco diamonds for the background, and the Simon/CZ Design Thanks for the sentiment.  I chose to use vellum as the background for the sentiment.  I thought it important to stand the sentiment apart from the leaves, but wanted the color to faintly show through...thus the vellum instead of a white background, which I felt would cover up too much.  Here's a close up...

Another card that makes me happy...oh how I love rainbows...and this cluster of leaves is soooo pretty...together...sheer happiness!!!
