Give Thanks

WOW-this is a record for me-3 cards in one week-end! No KL, don't say it, I'm not sure this will last!  Using several challenges to put this card together, see below.
I used SU! brushed gold and vanilla smooch on the images to add a little sparkle. The pearls are brown that I bought in Salt Lake City in one of the many shopping trips my daughter and I took! Oh yeah, I attended SU! convention too!
My inspiration challenges are:
365 Cards, Day 186, Ad Inspired - beautiful gold clock, gorgeous inspiration
Critter Challenge to think fall
Cupcake Challenge to get digital, the wreath is from Designed to Delight and it's free this week!
Designed 2 Delight to use the free, did I say, free? image!
Double Delight Challenge has a color challenge: green, yellow, orange and brown, get it? Fall colors!
No Time to Stamp wants to 'falling leaves'
Simon Says Stamp wants pearls (mine are brown) and lace (mine is embossed)
Stampin' Royality asked for rhinestone or pearls
4 Crafty Chicks posted a sketch to use and mine is pretty true to it. By the way, this is the first challenge!
Your Next Stamp says "Anything Goes!"
Pollycraft Monday Challenge to add a little nature
By the Cute and Girly to use the theme Indian Summer
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge is "Anything Goes!" and to use a digital image

Sure feels like Fall today, the air is cool and the humidity is low. I so wish I could can it and use it anytime I have a Tropical Heatwave!  LOL!
