Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #134

Happy Friday, my friends! =) Still can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! This week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge is the last one of the month. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

I wasn't so sure if this would look good since I wanted to use these non-fall patterned paper for this card. I think it turned out okay. What do you say?

I used the adorable A Thankful Day illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for my card. Those two birds just add so much cuteness and whimsy to this traditional Thanksgiving image. =)

The patterned paper is from Sassafras' Count Me In collection. The sentiment came with the stamp.

Here is the inside of the card.

That's all I have for today. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
