Thanksgiving card



This is the first Thanksgiving card that I have ever made, as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Ireland. That said I have a lot to be thankful for, my hubby being one, so I am going to give it to him. This weeks challenge on the PCMB is hosted by Sue and she challenged us to make a Thanksgiving card with a turkey, pilgrim or cornucopia on it. I got a beautiful digi image from There's magic in the air, and their challenge was to use the cornucopia image and a button. I also used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch, Papermania pp, button & gems and Victoria Cuttlebug EF.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Jessie, this is simply beautiful! I love the dry embossing on the left and the colors you chose. The single leaf and button, as well as the two little jewels are just perfect. Thanks for playing along even though you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, what a lovely card and wonderful idea/gesture to give to your husband, it looks masculine as well; and I absolutely love that idea! Thanks for playing along with this weeks challenge over at TMITA!

Lovely card, Jessie! The coloring on the image is flawless and the combo of the patterned paper and embossed panel is handsome. Also brilliant that the leaf behind the button and the ones on the image look so similar! Gorgeous! Thanks for playing along at TMITA!
