Thanksgiving and Cheery Lynn Designs

I think Thanksgiving gets lost in between Halloween and Christmas and it was always a favorite holiday of mine as a child.  The smell of pumpkin pie and turkey; all the cousins you only see on holidays; great family memories.  I could not resist this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil called The Big One.  Cheery Lynn Designs released two new XL embossing plates in October, I used Thanksgiving for the background on the front of my card.  After embossing my card stock, I added Distress inks to enhance the embossing.  I used my new Doily Circle Stackers for the panel behind the image. 

The card was created using my French Flair Stackers, Scalloped and Silver Nesting dies; they makes it so easy to layer all the panels.  This card is 5 5/8" when folded flat and will fit perfectly in a 6" envelope.

For the background of the inside, I used the new Pumpkin Patch XL embossing plate, again using Distress ink.  I added Border Carnivale , the sentiment which I computer generated and the final touch was some Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.
