Thanksgiving

The challenge at the Shabby Tea Room this week is to make something that reflects thankfulness.  This couldn't have come at a better time, as I needed some ideas for a few very special Thanksgiving cards.   I loved dt members Debbie and Cathy's examples using vintage images, so that's the direction I went.


I found this adorable image at the Clearly Vintage blog.  I love the bright autumn leaves against the blue sky.  I framed it with part of a doily, and added some autumnal paper scraps, a ribbon I dyed to match, and my sentiment. 

Supplies: pumpkin cardstock, scraps of autumnal design papers, doily, Hobby Lobby ribbon dyed with Versacolor Paprika ink, Hero Arts CL119 Happy Thanksgiving (sentiments)
