Giving Thanks for You

Happy Saturday to you all!  Autumn is on its way but you can't tell here.  The weather has been gorgeous and I love it!  I do also love fall though.  The crisp air, crunchy leaves, pumpkins.  All of it.  So today I have an autumnal card for you.  I chose an image from Daydream Designs called Bushel and a Peck.  There are several images in this set and I chose the one with the leaves.
I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils on kraft. 
 The leaf DP is ancient!  I have no idea how long it has been in my stash.  The torn strips were scraps in my stash.  I stitched the edges with a heavy thread.  I used pearl cotton to add some beads from my stash.  There are 2 green leaves and an orange tube.  They matched perfectly.
 I made the sentiment on my computer and followed the front sketch for the writing panel.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Autumn Gold
My Heart Pieces - Layers
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Shelly's Images -Anything Goes
Inspired By - Photo Inspiration

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
