Thanksgiving...again!

My second Fall, aka Thanksgiving, inspired card using more of my justjohanna stamps! I love these little gourds as much as I love the pumpkins!

This card layout was inspired by Deb Olson (who doesn't she inspire every day!) :-). The front of the card is about 1.5" shorter than the back of the card, attaching colored cardstock on inside of the card to add some complimentary color to the patterend paper. The corners of the card has been rounded with a corner round punch for a softer look. The orange strip of paper at the top of the page is part of a double-sided Fall paper, picked up at Wholly Scrap. My scalloped punch, made with a Marvy punch, has been layered with a smaller cream circle, which serves at a holding place for my gourds and leaf. A chocolate brown ribbon finishes the piece!

Happy Thanksgiving!

PS - Speaking of Thanksgiving...check out the quote I found yesterday (located on the right side of my blog) from Helen Keller. It's humbling to read a quote from someone, who was faced with such adversity, who was still so thankful for their life. It's so easy to complain about petty things....Like me being cranky last year because my coffee pot broke during a huge snowstorm and I had no way to have my morning coffee! Geesh...I had to do some repenting for that attitude! :-) So...BE THANKFUL for all that you have and enjoy your holiday!!
