Happy Thanksgiving

I suppose this will be my last Thanksgiving card made this season. Appropriately, the challenge for FOSTV (Friends of Speedy TV) is to make a Thanksgiving card. Mine turned out to be a clean and simple card. I'm using the leaf from the Autumn Glory stamp set and just sponged a bit inside each leaf. Then, I add some raffia and a brad and it is finished.

I wish all my blogging pals and everyone out there where Thanksgiving is being celebrated, a very Happy Thanksgiving. This will probably be my last post for a bit as I'll be away for Thanksgiving.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company-Autumn Glory
Paper: Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler, PTI white cardstock, Bazzill Basics Yukon Gold
Accessories: raffia, Happy Thanksgiving brad

Aaaaah, my beloved maple leaves :) Love the layout and the added raffia. Great card.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, my friend. :)
This card reminds me of a nature-inspired card you did maybe a year ago, and then I semi-CASE'd it. It used a pinecone and fern? Anyway, love the square layout and those pretty colored leaves. We still have ours falling from the trees up here in NJ. More raking to do!

The sponging on this is such a brilliant idea Benzi! I love the color combo! So perfect for this time of year in Alabama - when everyone else has winter we really have chilling Autumn days most of the time (at least compared to most places). Hugz and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
