Happy Thanksgiving Card

Autumn is here with all it's beautiful colors and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  This is a quick and easy Thanksgiving or fall card.  The vivid colors of the Distress Ink pads worked great for this project.  The use of the Inkssential Blending Tool with the Blending Foam made the application of the inks to the leaf, tag and card clean and easy.
