Make-a-Card Monday: Unconventional Thanksgiving Card

I really like the unconventional card I created using a couple different challenges as inspiration. 

I used Paper Smooches stamp sets Many Thanks and Gently Seasoned. I stamped the tree in Chocolate Chip and then added the "leaves" in Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, and Really Rust. The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo. The card base in Pool Party, the designer paper is from Crate Paper's Random collection, the shadow circle is Certainly Celery, and the harlequin embossed piece is Really Rust.

On the inside, I used the scraps from the designer paper, Really Rust, and Regal Rose paper to create some interest. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
