Giving Thanks

Hello Everyone!

It is hard to believe we are well into the month of November and Thanksgiving is next week!  Need a crafty break from the hecticness of the season?  There is still time to play at Ribbon Carousel's Challenge 87- Holidays and Celebrations!  This is wide open for interpretation- it could be Christmas or Hanukkah, or a birthday or even TGIF!!
Regardless of how you interpret it, you have a chance to win a Ribbon Carousel if you play!

Here is my Thanksgiving card~

I stamped my Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Decorative Frame and cut it out with the matching die.  I layered lots of little leaves and branches on the frame and then added a circular sentiment from snss's Vintage Postcard set.  A button and some yummy linen thread finish of the frame.  For the large mat, I distressed the edges, sponged on some brown color over a piece of drywall tape for texture, sponged with distress ink and spritzed on some color using a color spritzed and marker.  My next panel was embossed with a wood grain embossing folder and sponged with distress ink.  I added a piece of burlap ribbon and the decorated frame to this panel. 
Now it is your turn to play!
 There are only three (3) rules you must follow to be eligible for the prize:

  1. You MUST use ribbon, twine, thread, washi tape or anything that comes on a spool on your creation 
  2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month. 
  3. You must add a NEW project to the inlinkz here and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery. (Unfortunately, we've had participants who would have won the challenge, but they didn't do a direct link to their blog and I couldn't find their creation!)

Why not check out the rest of the fabulous Design Team's inspiration here, and then link up your entry!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
