Thanksgiving Leaf Cluster

Hello!  I hope today finds you well, and preparing for Thanksgiving tomorrow, if you are one of my American friends.  As I write this post, I'm not sure where we will spend this holiday, but I'll be giving thanks for the many blessings in my life - no matter where I am.


Today's card reminds me of a cornucopia, with bounty from the land (if you eat leaves and acorns), with rich colors thrown in. I fell in love with this card.  The leaves, the jewel tones mixed with neutrals, and the tiny details add up to something that pleases me.


Some Stampin' Up! Tulle Ribbon, found in a scrap bag (I live off of those scraps, as you can see from post to post), was pleated and added to the back of the plum panel with glue.


I leave you with a quote I found online:

"Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting."--Unknown

Be blessed, my friends.  :-D

A very pretty card, Colleen. I love the simplicity and elegance of it. I especially like the placement of the gathered netting at the right, brilliant move.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!!
