Thanksgiving Without A Thanksgiving Image

I enjoy making holiday cards from non-holiday images & I love flourish stamps.  That led me to pull out my Penny Black footnote (3857H) & some Zing! embossing powders: Rouge, Apricot, Leaf & Brown Sugar.  This is an easy stamp to line up using a stamp positioner. The embossed panel & card are edged with Delicata Golden Glitz.  I was delighted to find this sentiment in the Penny Black clear set friendship (30-160)--perfect for a Thanksgiving card going to one of my cardmaking friends.  It may have been better to heat emboss the sentiment, but too late now that the panel is attached with foam tape.  I decided against ribbon & just used some gems for embellishment.  Since the Simon Says challenge is Anything Goes, I'm linking my card there. They carry Penny Black & I have my eye on the new complimentary die for this stamp--fancy flourish, 51-020. Hope your weekend includes some fun, relaxation & craft time. Thanks for brightening my day with your visit.
Edited to add: Putting this into the collection at The Simplicity blog to save Thanksgiving.
