Vicky Gould was the hostess for this week's Stampin'B's DT Blog Challenge. She forced me to make one last Thanksgiving card – and it’s a pretty simple one.

The image is from a clear dollar stamp I found at Joanne, stamped in Palette Burnt Umber and quickly clear-embossed. I used a corner rounder to match the line border around the sentiment. To add a little more color to the basically monochromatic color scheme, I sponged around the edges with Palette Landscape. The card base is Really Rust, as is the punched layer around the sentiment. I used a Martha Stewart Around the Corner Punch to “fancy” it up a bit. The patterned paper is from Debbie Mumm’s Harvest & Holiday DP pad from last year. A little ribbon and one of the punched-out leaves, which I sponged, from the corner punch were added for a bit of an accent.

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.
