Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you are all having a terrific day with your friends and family. Gobble, gobble!

This is the last of the Fall/Thanksgiving cards. I actually made this card as part of the Design Team final call for Purple Onion Designs back in August. To make the wreath, I simply traced a circle on my cardstock using a very light shade of pencil. I then randomly stamped my leaves, inking them with a few different fall ink colors. I also added a few acorns. When it was all done, I went back with my Versamark pen and traced a few of the leaves and lightly dusted some gold mica powder for a bit of shimmer. It's a very subtle look, but it adds just the right amount of glitz, without being "too much."

The final touch was to add some of my favorite eyelash ribbon tied onto Dark Chocolate satin ribbon. Can't go wrong with chocolate! Have a great day!

P.S. I just realized how well my supply list coordinates with the Thanksgiving!
