Still Thankful

I was kind of busy and running late in getting my card swaps in for my local club.  November's theme was orange/brown/Thanksgiving.  I decided to pull out a JustRite stamp that I had been wanting to use.  I stamped it in orange on tan paper.  I cut it out with a die from Nellie Snellen, then sponged orange ink around the edges.  I layered this on a dark brown die (also Nellie Snellen).  I punched holes around the dark brown diecut to give it a doily look.

The base card is tan, with a dark brown layer.  I added orange decorative paper to the to half and brown embossed cardstock on the bottom half.  I inked the embossed design with versamark to bring out the design.  I adhered the "doily" and image to the bottom left side and added ribbon and a diecut with the word Thanks on the bottom right.  I added some brown chrystals on the upper right.

I entered this card in the following challenges:
