Thanksgiving Blessings

Away in a Manger Card
Nichole's Card
It's PTI release week, so instead of MIM the challenge is to be inspired by a DT project. Since I love making Christmas cards, my first idea was to use Snowflake Flurries with the design of a Maile card. But then I saw Autumn Adornments & thought it'd be beautiful used with Pearl Ex like this card Nicole did with Perfect Pearls.  I stamped the image & sentiment in Versamark on brown cardstock & brushed on Super Bronze Pearl Ex. 

The panel is mounted with foam tape to the card front covered with brown cardstock.  Easy to make & flat for mailing, so maybe hubby's newly found cousins will get Thanksgiving cards this year!  Thanks for stopping by.
