This is my card for the challenge.

SSS thanksgiving card

To make this card, I chose kraft as my card base. Then for the background, I used Apple of my Pie stamp set from the November Card Kit - Handmade with Love. There are three different leaves in the stamp set. I stamped these leaves randomly on a white cardstock using fall colours of orange, green, red, yellow and brown. I then die cut a large rectangle panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set. I then used the second largest rectangle die to die cut the vellum layer. For the sentiment layer, I die cut another stitched rectangle panel using white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the panel in black. I layered and glued down all the panels on the card base. Some flush mounted and some using foam adhesives. To frame the sentiment, I used Maple Trio dies from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut and used sponge dauber to sponge distress inks ink fall colours coordinating with the background. Then I clustered them in threes and adhered them diagonally. Finally embellished with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
