Happy Thanksgiving - Really Reasonable Ribbon Guest Spot

It's an exciting day today, firstly it is my birthday!!! I'm posting this in advance as I will no doubt be tired as we will have been to see Skyfall at the 0.07 time slot! It will have been my first "midnight movie" and I hope I enjoyed it! LOL
Secondly today I start my November Guest Slot at Really Reasonable Ribbon!. Bonnie is an absolute sweetheart and so when she asked me if I could do a month for her it took me just a second to say yes!
The store is the best around for ribbon, lace, twine, trim, any of that lovely stuff to gussy up your crafting projects!
I will be sharing 5 projects over the month and I hope you will enjoy them all.
Today's card features another of the fabulous Saturated Canary images and of course lots of wonderful ribbons!

Card Recipe:
Image - Cinders by Saturated Canary
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Hobby Lobby
Sentiment - 7 Gypsies
Card Candi - Vintage Honey
Ribbon - Natural Burlap with Pink/White Edge, Brown with White Stiched Edge, Gingham Multi Orange, Double Ruffle White

I layered the Brown with White Stiched Edge and Gingham Multi Orange on the message mat inside to coordinate with the outside.

Cinders looks a little sad now her pumpkin has turned back from the carriage to its original state :)

I made a triple layered border across the bottom of the card. I love how easy it is to pleat the Natural Burlap with Pink/White Edge with its wire edge. I also added both the Gingham Multi Orange and Double Ruffle White to the top of the tag.
I hope you enjoyed this and I will be back sharing at Really Reasonable Ribbon on the 13th for the monthly blog hop!

I am leaving you a second message. This card is so gorgeous. I would very much like to know where you got the corn stalks and wheat. Are they dies, stamps or what. If you don't mind sharing, I would love to know where you got them.
Thanks so much.
