Thanksgiving Blessings

This is my first attempt at a side-step card. It actually wasn't difficult making the cut and scores. 

I bought some Heartfelt Creations stamps/dies at the Scrapbook Expo this year and am finally using the Falling Leaves stamps and die set. I used Distress Inks (Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, and Spiced Marmalade) on the leaves. Also added Fall Leaves and Florida Beach glitter by Sparkle n Sprinkle. Stamped with Staz-On Timber Brown ink. 

The sentiment is also from the same Falling Leaves set and was embossed with Fiery Brown embossing powder from Sparkle n Sprinkle. 

The pumpkin stamp is by Hero Arts and used brown embossing powder and colored with chalks. Added Florida Beach glitter by Sparkle n Sprinkle. 

The wheat stamp is by Inkadinkadoo "Meadow" set and stamped with Adirondack Terra Cotta and Butterscotch inks. Added Florida Beach and Imaginations glitter by Sparkle n Sprinkle. 

I really enjoyed putting this card together and definitely plan on using this shape again!! 

I'm adding this to the Celebrate the Occasion challenge #79 - Getting in Shape.
