Freshly Made Sketches #56

Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  The sketch this week is brought to us by Rita.  I needed a few more cards for Thanksgiving, so I flipped the sketch to accommodate my pumpkin stamp from So Grateful.  I love this stamp set, it includes the solid pumpkin shape and then a text stamp that you can stamp on top. Here is a look at the original sketch:

I am obviously going through a fancy bow stage!  I wanted to keep my card I kept my bow to a minimum with bakers twine from the Harvest Assortment.  I added the button detail to finish off my bow.
