Another Thanksgiving card

This is going to be my day to make Thanksgiving cards,   I think I only need one more, I already had some made, so the push is on.

For this card I'm entering this card in three different challenges.

I started with the sketch at   "TRY STAMPING -OR NOT- ON TUESDAY"    The sketch is for challenge #296, you had the option of also using the sketch for a Thanksgiving card which I did.
I loved this sketch because I could look at it and know I would get to use a variety of patterned papers together and also do some matting on the papers, that I really like to do to have them stand out.
Here is the sketch....

Next I went to the challenge #418  at   "THE COLOR THROWDOWN"    The colors from this weeks photo inspiration are Orange, Rust, Teal & Copper.     I was inspired with all the colors and used them all including three copper pearls on my card.   I also used the leaf as inspiration and added one also to my card.   Here is the photo inspiration with the colors......

Finally I will enter my card at   "SHOPPING OUR STASH"     This weeks challenge #277 is
"Gobble 'til you Wobble"  and that will be just what my family will be doing in just over a week when  we gather together for our Thanksgiving celebration.       I really shopped my stash on this one because I used everything from my scrap drawer with the exception of the teal card stock and the square with the leaf on it.

  2. Some cards just grab me even in the thumbnail view - and yours was one of then, Barb! I love, love, love burnt orange - so your use of the specialty papers was bound to make me click to see more! Thanks for sharing on Try Stampin' -or not- on Tuesday! -Donna
