Happy Harvest

Bummer I have to work tomorrow.  How is World Card Making Day not a national holiday?! Hopefully can get in on some of the fun in the evening.  
Couldn't miss the current CASology challenge with the cue word "Harvest." I used Rosemary's technique of embossing with a piece of burlap for the card base.  All the edges are sponged with Distress Inks antique linen & gathered twigs.  The wheat is from Our Daily Bread & is colored with Distress Markers mustard seed & wild honey.  I stamped 3 times without re-inking & added some scattered straw Stickles.  The sentiment is an old favorite wood mounted stamp by Imaginations!--another company no longer in business.  I pierced a border, added twine & mounted the piece with foam tape. Pretty flat, so will be a good Thanksgiving card to mail.  I'm also adding this to the collection at The Simplicity Blog to save Thanksgiving.
