Canada's Thanksgiving

On October 10 Canada will celebrate their Thanksgiving...so.....the  
is challenging all crafters to make a card using fall colors or thanks or fall colors using thanks...you pick.
Have you seen the new, updated, gorgeous look at DDCCB?
Jules did a fab job of re-doing the Daisy's blog and it looks so fresh and vibrant.
This was a fun and quick card since the leaf was colored weeks ago 
in anticipation of this fall challenge.
I used the Japanese screw punch to make the two holes,  then thread the twine through and tie on the leaf.
I used two different kraft papers and a leaf border punch.
This card, not counting the coloring of the leaf, took about five minutes, not
exactly my usual card!!!
Thanks for coming by!

one stitch at a time challenge- favorites ( My favorite Kraft paper)
sentimental sundays - Out of the comfort zone

supplies: white Craft Ink from SU, Pumpkin Pie 
Kraft papers, border punch from EK Success
