Thanksgiving Card

Hello~~ This card I created for the MMSC21 sketch challenge and The Cuttlebug Spot challenge which is "Welcoming Fall" theme :-)
I created a "Happy Thanksgiving" card!! The focused Cornucopia image is a stamp from Cynthia Elmore. Cut out and embossed the image with Labels 4 nestie. Colored the image with copics and then used a dobber to highlight the entire image with Brillance Copper Cosmic Ink~~Love the glistening sparkle it portrays :D Matted the image with BBP dotted swiss paper and popped it up with foam tape. I CB embossed the dark DP edges with flower vine border and the smaller DP shapes with D'vine Swirls and Floral Screen. Added character with sentiment tag, ribbon, flowers and brad. Here is a close up of the Cornucopia and harvest~~so much prettier in person~~light just not right :(
Close up of flower embellies~~just love how this turned out :D
