May your joys be countless

Another Thanksgiving card for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, using a vintage image that I found on Google.  I think this is a real keeper of an image - the sentiment is exactly right:

For love present,
ills past,
and good to come,
may our hearts rejoice
this Thanksgiving Day.

May your joys be as countless
as the golden grains

I stamped the background grains on kraft cardstock using tea dye distress ink and Hero's Silhouette Grass stamp, added that to a darker brown card, then framed my printed image on brick red to bring out the barn in the image.  Added some lace edging and the very, very last of a spool of this golden ribbon and a button, to reflect the sunset.

Supplies: kraft, brick and brown cardstocks, Hero Arts S5316 Silhouette Grass, tea dye distress ink, scrap of lace, golden ribbon, button
