Harvest Thank You - Stampin' Up! Gather Together

   My thank you card stash has dwindled quite low in recent weeks so I was on a mission last week to stock back up when I ended up needing 3 thank you cards to use right away.  So much for stocking up!  My card today actually fits in with 2 different challenges.  The first is the Just Add Ink challenge to make a thank you card. The second challenge is a new to me one called Tic Tac Toe Challenge which gives a great tic tac toe board of choices to create with for each challenge.

  The card for today clearly fits the thank you requirements and my tic tac toe choice is the "pumpkin", "leaf" and "linen/burlap" line.

  The card base is Very Vanilla thick.  Next is a Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle in Early Espresso topped with a piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.

  I added a strip of wide burlap trim and then layered the stamped images from there.  The sentiment from Ornate Thanks is embossed in gold on Crumb Cake cardstock. The pumpkins and wheat sprig are stamped in Early Espresso.  The pumpkins are colored with Blends and then cut out and popped with dimensionals.

  I added a few retired candy dots in Cajun Craze and Early Espresso around the image grouping.  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
