Happy Thanksgiving

Hi all and welcome to my blog, today I design a card for the Creative Cutting Challenge. The theme for the next 2 weeks are Thanksgiving. I decided to make a card
The Thanksgiving card was made with Creative Pointe’s Thanksgiving set 3

 I used the Horn of Plenty and the Thanksgiving heading for the card with my cameo. The files cut nicely and add a nice touch to the card. 
I started with a premade card base I had on hand, The background paper comes from the Alleghany Plum paper pack. The die cut pieces were cut from scraps, love using up the scraps I have on hand. I added gold liquid pearls to the Happy Thanksgiving heading and variety of stickles to bring out more color in the cardstock pieces. The banners are made from fabric ribbon that I have on hand and added a border of golden sparkly trim that I had in my stash. Thankful that my husband had one time worked in textiles now I have all kinds of trims in my stash.
I also decorated brought the background piece into the inside of the card
added a scrap of cardstock for the sentiment or a note, not quite sure yet. I have a special Aunt that will be getting this card.

I see this morning I got over a 100 followers, woohoo! Now that sounds like a party and for you all that means a giveaway, check back this week for the details.
 
I added the card to challenges:
Cut It Up:Thanksgiving Challenge #31

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving as well, eat and be merry, but most be thankful.
