Thanksgiving PSC05 and November Monthly Challege

Well, here we are at the start of another week.  I had a very quiet weekend.  My "Gateway" modem crashed Friday night during the night so I woke up Saturday morning with no TV or Internet and found out later that my printer didn't work either since it's WiFi.  After my initial frustration and a call to my provider, I got busy with other things.  I had started working on this challenge and between Saturday and Sunday night, it all changed around so the finished product is not how I initially visualized my card.
I get to use this for 2 challenges this time.  The images I used from SU Day of Gratitude were in the card kit that I sent out to everyone for the Monthly Challenge on SCS and, of course it's for the Perfect Sentiment Challenge for this week.

The Challenge: create a card that portrays a sentiment of Thanksgiving/Fall.
The Twist: use brads or eyelets. If you don't own any brads or eyelets you may substitute with any type of metal embellishment.
I used SU Crushed Curry for the base of the card and really like the 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square card.  The dp is from my stash, but it was perfect for this card.  The images are from SU Day of Gratitude.  They are stamped on white c/s and then cut out and popped up on the card with dimensionals.  The "ribbon" I used is fabric ribbon that I purchased some time ago from  It was also perfect for this card.  I love that Hunter Green color.  I was having a hard time figuring out how to add the sentiment and found these alphabets from Tim Holtz.  They fit very well and added just what was needed.  I ended it off with a little bling and the sparkley brad in the center of the image.   All in all, I was pleased with the result.  Again - no Copics this time, but I'm sure they'll be back soon.
Thanks for coming by.  I appreciate all comments.  Have a great day!
