Give Thanks

First and foremost, I want to say...Happy Veteran's Day and a big THANK YOU for those that have fought for our freedom here in the United States and those that are currently defending our country and will someday be our future veteran's.

Here is my card using the new image, Harvest Basket from Designed2Delight.  Since Fall is my most favorite season, I am loving this image.  I printed the image and colored it up with my markers and cut it out with the Labels Four die cuts by Spellbinders.  I used the Houndstooth embossing folder on a piece of brown card stock  as my base for the image.  I added some orange ribbon and two yellow buttons threaded with orange floss.  The whole image was added to the card base with foam dots.  The Harvest Basket set comes with 3 different sentiment and this is the one I chose to use.  I kept my card on the clean and simple side, but not really postal friendly with the two yellow buttons.
