Thanksgiving Cards

I am so thankful for so many things.  At this moment, I am thankful I am finished with this card. LOL
And you are looking at this and asking, "So what's the big deal?"
Firstly it took a lot of time to color each of those leaves but what took the longest was the inside:
Because I saw a few pop up cards this week, I thought it would be fun to make one.  It took me way to long to figure out what size to make the pop out strips.  Then it took quite a while to cut out the leaves, emboss them, sponge some, glue them on.  Then when it did not turn out the way I envisioned,  there was a bit of disappointment.  But I do like it. It is for a granddaughter and think she will like it.  I know her mom will.  And now I can say I have done a pop up card.  So all is well.

Materials used :  Kraft, Ruby Red card stock, digital paper by Doodle Pantry, burlap ribbon (Kraft Outlet), bronze leaf brad, cocoa ink, digital image by Eureka. 

I used the sketch at Timeless Tuesday, flipping the sketch on the right
