Well, maple leaves are perfect for Canada! I do believe I have both a tigerlily and more than one dogwood ;-).
We used to have some little pie tins (I don't know what you'd call them, a tray that you could make twelve little tarts in. We had two trays, and I'm sure they came with my mother when she moved here from Canada, because they had maple leaves embossed in the bottom of each one.
Great masculine card.

Great idea on this card. Like how you left it open to embellish it later if you wanted too! I have to remember that clever idea. Thanks for adding the facts about the dogwood and lily. Your card enhances the gallery today.

Wendy, the sheer simplicity of your Thank You card is what drew me in - the soft sponging doesn't 'overpower' the Thank You, the swirl and the corner are just right, and your bag of maple leaves sure came handy at just the right time -
