Thanksgiving again

But first before I talk about today's card, I just wanted to say thanks to all of the men and women who have served in our country's armed forces. I am truly grateful for the freedom my family has because of people like you. And you know what? A big thank you also to all of the moms, dads, wives, husbands and children of our veterans - for their sacrifice as well.

       Well here is today's love offering. Notice the difference between this card and November 9th's card? The first one contains a butternut squash and this one has an eggplant. I know you were really really wondering about that. lol!

   Details: The background was run through my Big Shot using the texturz plate. But after I did that I didn't think the detail stood out enough so I got out a sponge and brushed Really Rust ink over the Pumpkin Pie cardstock. It added just the depth I was looking for. Not sure you can see it in the photo though.

   I used the faux copic marker technique again. It just makes those colors go POW! Some distressing, speckles (from my color spritzer and marker), sponging and some embellishments completed the card.
