So Thankful - Paper Cutz Challenge

Hi Ya Everyone,
  This week at Paper Cutz Mary has asked everyone to create a Thanksgiving card using buttons and bows!  Had a lot of fun with this challenge as I love buttons and bows!  I also love love love Thanksgiving!!!  The food and the family and friends is just the perfect holiday to me!!!  All of my favorites!  I decided to color up a fun Thanksgiving dessert - Pumpkin Pie.  This adorable stamp is from the Meljen's Designs newest release Pumpkin Pie Slice.  Also, all Meljen stamps are half off right now!!!  Colored the pie with my Copics.

 I computer generated the So Thankful right on the stamp and cut it out with my scalloped oval nestable.  I then used a few different layered papers and mounted the pumpkin cut-out on top.  I took a piece of burlap stuff (LOL - not sure what to call this stuff) and put a little ribbon and a button with some hemp twined in it.
Fall colors are just beautiful!!!  I love this time year and the colors of fall are so fun to work with on my cards!  I hope you like the card and head on over to Paper Cutz and participate in this fun challenge!
