Blessings for Thanksgiving

Time to think about Thanksgiving dinner preparation this morning, but first I want to post my entry for Joan's Garden Challenge.  She wants us to 1. Create a Thanks giving card.   2. Use something Fallish such as Leaves, Pumpkins or Indian Corn (if you don't have a stamp use a leaf from your tree.  3. The color Green. 4. Some kind of swirl or vine.
I used this pumpkin stamp from an unknown source which already has a vine and leaves but added more vine cut with a sizzix die. Colored the image with Copics and matted on a circle of green. Embossed the background mat with swirl design. Added Sentiment of "Blessings" and ribbon to finish.
