Thankful Thursday adventure

I have a friend who posts Thanksgiving pictures on Facebook every day in November, and I thought I'd join in a little this year.  Sunday I found a song on You Tube that I linked to my Facebook page for her, then I found this on another friend's page:

But mainly, I thought I'd try to make and post one Thanksgiving card each week.  I wanted to use the Truly Grateful stamp set, so I looked through some challenge blogs for color and sketch ideas.  Paper Craft Crew has a great sketch and The Card Concept has a beautiful Thank"Fall" inspiration photo.  Just Us Girls is looking for wreaths, so this is how I combined all of that:
stamp sets - Truly Grateful, Wondrous Wreath; ink - Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand; card stock - Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip; designer series paper - Flashback; punch - Cupcake Builder; Big Shot with Wonderful Wreath and Bitty Banners framelits
The photo at The Card Concept inspired my color choices, and I like that the striped designer series paper and the wood grain panel echo the lines of the siding and the wheelbarrow.  Since my card is fairly clean-lined with some "white" space but has many layers, I think it fits the Clean and Layered style.

I'm loving this Wondrous Wreath–I see it everywhere and I've used it myself a few times–it never fails to delight me! Love how you combined the wreath with the Truly Grateful set.

First of all, thanks for my daily giggle - love the comic!

I love the gorgeous colors that you used on your wreath! Your stamping is amazing - such crisp, clean images that are showcased in your great design. The three brads really add the perfect touch by mimicking the berries in the wreath. Thanks for sharing your pretty card with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
