Hello and welcome to my crafty world

This card I have made for a challenge swap on Flickr [Hugz from the Heart] , the theme being Thanksgiving.

For this card I used a Crafty Individuals stamp, shaded it to fit in with a colour challenge. It is mounted on a card which I embossed with a Tim Holtz 's Pine Tree folder and a few leaves. The ribbons came from my stash as did the Thanksgiving setiment. The base card again is chocolate brown

I will also enter it into the following challenges.
