Time to Pile On the Challenges!!

Happy Sunday and Happy November!
I can't believe it's another new month, Thanksgiving will be here soon and then Christmas!
It's time for another card with a bundle of challenges, yes it's a new Pile It On card!
This time the Design Team had a theme of Thank You.

Cupcake Crafts gave me the sketch
Gingersnap GC27 had a Color Challenge of Orange, Green and Brown
Treehouse Stamps had a color combo that worked too of Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede and a neutral
The PlayDate Cafe had a color combo of Orange, Yellow and Brown
Magnolia Down Under wanted to see the Distressing technique.
Flourishes wanted Border Punches
Sunflowers and Dragonflies had a "Flower Power" theme
Crafty Creations had a Give Thanks/Thanksgiving theme
Stampin B's Thanksgiving theme
Gingersnap GC28 also has a Thankfulness theme
Cuttlebug Challenge wanted a Favorite thing and so I chose my trusty Swiss Dots folder!
Whimsical Ink wanted Embossing
Alphabet Challenge had C for Circles (the buttons are circles)
Scrapbox wanted to see Circles too!

Now this was a new technique for me, I stamped my image on Kraft colored paper and used my Copic's on that. It gives a different look and I think it works really well for this style/theme of card.
The image is called Stylish Tilda and I do think she has a ton of style!
The dp is Bo Bunny for the background and the brown word paper is DCWV.
The sentiment is 7 Gypsies. The flowers are Prima and the clear buttons are from Basic Grey.
The brown panel is embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and punched with the Martha Stewart Valentines Lace border punch.
The edges of the panel, background and mats are all inked with Chalk Ink.
Finally the ribbon is Michaels from this years Christmas collection.

The inside is more Bo Bunny dp and a message mat topped with ribbon.

Coloring on Kraft paper gives a different look but I think it is worth a try!
I'd love to see your creations on the Thanks theme, please go and post them over at Pile It On
