Falling for Thanksgiving

How about a Thanksgiving card? This is a 4x4 notecard that turned out just like I imagined it would! That doesn't happen very often, I can tell you. Most of the time my projects have a way of developing as I go rather than a formed idea from the start. It helps that I get to use some of my favorite colors, the Earth Elements :)
I never would have thought to send a Thanksgiving card, but wouldn't you love to receive a little note from a loved one? Especially if you know you won't be able to get together over the holiday. It would be a nice addition to a hostess gift, not necessarily the SU workshop kind either :)
I paper pierced around the Olive mat, and made faux stitching around all of the images with either Soft Suede marker or white gel pen. The white squares are 1-1/4" matted onto the scallop Square punch, and popped up on dimensionals. I used Ruby Red, Soft Suede, and More Mustard markers to ink the acorn stamp, punched out with the 1-1/4" circle and matted on a 1-3/8" circle. I stuck cut up dimensional on the center corners of the 4 leaves, then stuck the matted acorn embellie to it so it would pop a little higher than the others.
