Thankful......{TKJ Challenge #148}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
 The Kraft Journal!
This week the challenge is:
So Thankful
~here is the Thanksgiving card I created~hope you like it~
I wanted to use this adorable image from Some Odd Girl for my card. 
Meet Indian Tia
Now my coloring of her is not nearly as good as the SOG DT and/or Kristy does, but she sure was fun to color! Using my copics and and some stickles for the sparkle, I colored her and then set her aside to assemble my card.  I started the card using a Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock base and added layers of Graphic 45 designer paper from the Le Cirque paper pack. Once Indian Tia was dry, she was added it to another mat of the Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and more of the matching DP. To embellish my card, I added some Cream Twill Tape and just knotted it as well as placed some Custom Fasteners to the corners with some stickles to add more sparkle. For the sentiment, I used a speech bubble die from My Creative Time's Stitched Round Speech Bubbles set and a piece of the Canvas Triangle. Then using a sticker from the Chit Chat Seasonal Word pack I stuck it to the center of the speech bubble.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
