Thanksgiving Ham?

     I've been working on Christmas cards all weekend long but this is a Thanksgiving card for today.  I know, I know - no turkey, no Pilgrims, no Indians but if you read the sentiment, you'll see that it's all about being thankful.  :-D     


This is my take on the sketch from The Outlawz
but I shifted the horizontal piece upward.


     This image is from Angie's Digital Stamps and I colored it with my ProMarkers.  Both the image and the beige frame were cut with a stitched die from Die-namics and the image is inlaid into the frame.  I matted that with some olive green CS which I ran through my "Linen " embossing folder.  Both papers are from the "Autumn Leaves" stack by DCWV and the yellow leaves dp is also matted with die cut beige CS.  With the exception of the green background paper, everything else on the card was cut from scraps.

     Finally, I added a hand tied bow made from burlap ribbon.
