Bushels of Thanks

Here is another card I made with Diane's Daydream Designs sets, Bushel and a Peck, Give Thanks to the Lord, and Signs of Fall.

I love all these sets and I really enjoy working with pre-colored images. The colors in the verse are already done for me.  What a great idea and saves me the trouble of tweaking them in my publisher program.
The button is cut with a  MFT die and threaded with twine from the Kraft Outlet.
I considered putting a die cut cardstock frame around the verse but decided to just use the Spellbinders  die to emboss a frame.  I like the openness that it gives the card.
You can't see it in the photo but the pumpkin and leaves in front of it are popped up with a dimesional. 
If this is the last time you will be visiting my blog before Thanksgiving Day, let me take this time to wish you a wonderful one.  And remember to give thanks to Whom thanks is due.  God is the giver of all perfect gifts and He is good; His love does endure forever.
