Give Thanks and Celebrate

This is my second card for the new Crafting for all Seasons Challenge which has two great sponsors again this week, The Stamping Boutique who are providing a great prize of either 3 digi images or 1 digi paper pack and Bugaboo Stamps who are offering a fantastic 7 digis as a prize.

This week we are celebrating Thanksgiving but you have the choice to make

a Thanksgiving card
a Thank you card
use the sketch

or any combination of the three

We don't really celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK but I decided to make this card using The Stamping Boutique image 'Audrey the Pilgrim' anyway:

I followed this weeks sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and cut it out using a Spellbinders die, Kraft card stock has been used as a base and for the sentiment.  The backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's 'House Mouse Inserts CD' and the flowers, buttons and bakers twine are from my stash.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front:

Image: The Stamping Boutique - Audrey the Pilgrim
Papers:  Joanna Sheen - House Mouse Inserts CD
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Ovals, Beaded Ovals, CREAlies Label
Embellishments:  flowers, buttons and bakers twine from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would  like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday Week 181 - Sketch
