Give Thanks

Good Morning Everyone!!
I have some pretty exciting news to share.
I am now designing for Creative Cafe.
I am part of the card team and I will be posting both here on my blog and over at Creative Cafe every Wednesdays.
I would LOVE it if you stopped by, became a member and became one of my followers.
There are TONS of projects ideas, contests and challenges to be entered into!
This wonderful group of ladies I design with are so super talented and I know you will all find lots of inspiration over there!

For my card today I wanted to stick with the fall/thanksgiving theme and use this adorable freebie SVG from Paper Crafting World for Cooking with Cricut's  Harvest Challenge
For my card base I welded 2 circles in SCAL at 4.5" and cut it out in Kraft Card Stock
The background layer was cut at 4.25" using a piece of scrap in my stash
All the adorable pumpkins, leaves, and basket were all in the file and were all inked with Inkadinkado pigment inks
I used all PTI card stock for my cuts in
Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate,
Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado,
Terracotta Tile and Harvest Gold
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's~Happy Fall Stamp Set
I also added some crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam in Hot Chocolate
I finished my card off with some white gel pen doodles :)

I am entering this into the following challenges:
