Happy Thanksgiving!

Flourish Holly by Penny Black
 
I know .. the blog post title says Happy Thanksgiving and the card says "Christmas".  But a wish for peace is good for Thanksgiving, too.  Here in the United States we are celebrating a day to be grateful for our blessings, usually with a traditional feast of turkey and trimmings.  It is also the day that marks the official holiday shopping season, with some stores opening in the evening instead of waiting for "black Friday". 
 
The card was made by stamping Penny Black's Flourish Holly image and embossing with clear.  I then embossed using a heart Cuttlebug folder.  I thought the pearls and metallic gems added even more texture and I just couldn't stop until I tied a ribbon around it all!
 
May your Thanksgiving day be one spent with friends and family enjoying the blessings we have so abundantly. 
 
Your visits are on my gratitude list.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Judy, this is really lovely. That shade of green, the heart embossing, and the soft ribbon are all so pleasing. Must get out this lovely stamp and play with it too!
