Sweet Sunday......Give Thanks

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I have not made very many fall cards this year even tho it is my favorite time of the year, and since Thanksgiving is this Thursday here in America, I took this opportunity to make a one.
I pulled out my Stampin Up Fall Fest stamp set along with the Hardwood Background and the For All things set and got busy!

I love a square card and was excited to use this sketch!
The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and then a layer of Cajun Craze and the DSP comes from the Color Me Autumn paper pack.
The center layers are Cajun Craze and another piece of Crumb Cake that is stamped with Crumb Cake ink using the Hardwood BG stamp. I added the sentiment from the For All Things stamp set using Cajun Craze ink.

I used a piece of the 1-1/4" burlap ribbon across the bottom. I stamped three pumpkins from the Fall Fest stamp set using Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake ink. I cut them out with the matching dies and sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink. I cut three small leaves that are from the Fun Fall Framelits and crumbled them up a bit. I added them to the pumpkins and then used some small buttons and twine to top them off.  I used a bit of crystal effects on the leaves to make them look a bit wet and then colored all over the pumpkins with my Wink of Stella pen to add a bit of a glow.

I finished off with a few gold sequins.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today
