Thanksgiving card with special background paper

This card is one I made using a lovely background paper from a DCWV 4.5 x 6.5 mat stack. Though the background paper is lovely, I haven't been happy with the card.  I finally figured out why.  There is a fight for focal!  The pumpkin etc. in the lower corner is fighting with my focal.  To overcome that problem, I need to add another, larger mat behind my focal.  Oh well - I don't have time this year. :(

Anyway, the focal was made with another freebie tag from Hot Off the Press.  It is matted with orange glitter cardstock (from another DCWV mat stack) that was cut with my Resplendent Rectangles die set.  There are a couple of little teal printed pieces that have been added - one behind the focal and one behind the bow.  These are cut from another sheet in one of the mat stacks.

Another Thanksgiving card is made.  Will I ever finish them?
