It's Almost Thanksgiving

Wow, I can't believe how fast time is moving! Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving?! I'm ready for that turkey dinner that day, aren't you?!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I have a new card to show you today.  I wet with  fall colors for this cute Thanksgiving/Give Thanks card.  I've used the  freebie newsletter image, Priscilla Pilgrim, from Rick St Dennis.  If you aren't familiar with the work of Rick St Dennis, you really are missing out! He draws awesome digital images! Go check them out in his store! You will be so glad you did!

I've colored the image with Promarkers. All fall colored papers are from my stash. I've used blue card stock for my cad base and matting, to add a touch of color. I've used one of my favorite tools, my crop a dile, to punch four holes in the bottom panel, then inserted a brad in each hole and wrapped orange and white twine around each brad, before securing the brad to the card.  The Twine is threaded through a brown buttons, recycled from old clothing I threw out during a cleaning spree.  Gotta love recycling! The sentiment is by Taylored Expressions and has been hand stamped, then punched with circle punches.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
