Fall Thanks

I pulled out some long retired papers from Close To My Heart for my Fall Thanks card.  The pattern papers are from the Felicity Collection.   The colors in the collection were a perfect match for the color challenge this week at The Paper Players!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to get a little more stamping time with my favorite pumpkin from So Grateful!  Notice the plaid buttons?  I made them with scraps of leftover paper and some clear buttons.  I adhered my pattern paper to the clear buttons with Liquid Glass and then punched the holes and threaded with a left over piece of burlap string. Perfectly matched embellishments!

I kept the inside blank to write a sentiment at a later date.
