Lacy Sunshine Challenge #46 Thanksgiving or Harvest

Good morning! Hope you have all had a splendid weekend. Today it's time for another challenge from the Lacy Sunshine Design Team and this fortnight we want you to make a card for Harvest or Thanksgiving. Over here in the UK we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I made a thankful card instead. I think we all have something to be thankful for in our lives, but I am most thankful for my boyfriend of 18 years. He has put up with me for this long so he must be a keeper.

I used the cute Rory's Giant Pumpkin for my card and kept to an Autumnal colour scheme as well. I love how she turned out! I kept it fairly simple as I wanted Rory to be the main focus, so I added a couple of die cut layered pumpkins and a bow and left it at that.


I am also entering this card into Crafting When We Can's Challenge #82 to use your markers, Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #261 to use war colours,  Di's Digi Designs Challenge Colours of Autumn and for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes.
