Give Thanks

Today's card is my first project as one of the newest members of the Creative Card Crew design team.  This week's challenge them is Give Thanks & is sponsored by Meljen Designs.    This digital stamp is her Autumn Leaf & Acorn design (it is on for 1/2 price right now).   so head on over to Creative Card Crew to see what the rest of the design team has in store for you.

I coloured the design with Copics & then printed & reduced the design three more times so I could get the extra acorns for the corners.  The paper is from one of the piles I hoard, the ribbon rom Stampin Up & the spacer beads were found at the Dollar Store.  The sentiment is computer generated & the swirls are done with Copper Stickles.
I've entered the card in the following challenges:
Meljen's Challenge Blog - use three different shapes (square for the center, rectangle for the sentiment & the cut out acorns) - ends Nov 10
Lots To Do - Autumn Colors - ends Nov 12
