Happy Thanksgiving

Today is our Thanksgiving Holiday in Canada

I created this card as DT for Herazz Scrapbooking, a Canadian online store


For the frame, I used Distress Woodgrain cardstock, inked with
Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke, Brushed Cordoroy and Walnut stain


Autumn leaves Sizzix thinlits die on 140lbs watercolor paper
Distress Inks: Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, 
Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive
I also added some Autumn Leaves Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes 


For the blackboard, I used Black pearlized cardstock
Stamps 3 times using Picket fence distress ink
Misti works great for this.
