Thanksgiving Greetings

Thanksgiving is fast approaching!  Sharing another card for the season of thanks today.
A Couple Details:
  • Lots of layered patterns on this card.  Are you loving chevron patterns as much as I am lately?  They are everywhere and, while a classic design, are totally on-trend.  This subtle two-tone rust chevron paper from My Mind's Eye is just the perfect background for the vintage pastoral image.
  • Sometimes the perfect ribbon is hiding.  This ribbon is actually from a Halloween  set that I just happened to pull out of the drawer.
  • To make to flower appear more full, I layered two of the same flower and offset them slightly.
