SC357.....Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thursday Peeps, it a cool and windy day here in SW MO, I do love the cooler temps but don't love that the heater has kicked on several times today!

I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you today, I made this card using the sketch challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers. I love making punched pumpkins so I decided when I saw the sketch that one would be perfect here.
I made the punched pumpkin using the large oval punch and pumpkin pie card stock. I punched three ovals and then embossed them with the vintage wall EF and my big shot.
I then sponged the edges heavily using cajun craze ink. I added a hand cut stem and a small little swirl from the Scribbles Swirls die. I used some jute twine and a button to make a bow and added that as well. I then added a leaf pin that I had in my stash, I think I got these a year or two back from JoAnn's.

The base of the card is Early Espresso card stock and then a layer of very vanilla and the DSP I used is from the Spice Cake paper pack from Stampin' Up.  I then added a strip of early espresso that was embossed with the square lattice EF I attached a punched layer of old olive punched with the lace border punch.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "thankful for" so glad I got that one before it was gone. 
I finished it off with three gold pearls.
Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
