Vintage Thanksgiving


Vintage cards are great for Thanksgiving cards especially when I have a great image to use that does not need coloring.  I just aged this digital image from Create with TLC with some distress ink and a distress tool. My background is a Digital "Old Paper"" from Graphics Fairy which I also distressed with ink and a tool.  Finished with the sentiment and a wide wired ribbon with ombre colors that matched the colors in my card.  Does the corn image make you think of the first Thanksgiving?
