Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday challenge using Pilgrim Marci

Happy Tuesday Bloggers! I hope you all had a great weekend and a nice Veteran's Day.  I had Monday off  and am now getting ready for the rest of my busy week ahead!  It's also been cooling off quite a bit so need to get out those sweaters and boots!  Seems like just last week we were just having a heat wave here! Crazy weather, huh?!!  

So the challenge this week is "Gobble Til You Wobble" which is definitely a Thanksgiving theme. I love all the delicious foods during Thanksgiving so I'm sure I'll be "Wobbling" too! LOL

  Here is my card:

I was excited to use "Pilgrim Marci"from La La Land Crafts.  She is super adorable and was so much fun to color up!  I used my copic markers to do so.   I definitely want to get "Pilgrim Luka" too so I can pair them together on another card!  The branches with the beads on the bottom are from Michael's.  I'm not sure if this was part of the Halloween collection but they were on clearance and practically free so I had to pick up a few of these sprays!  These matched perfectly with my card so I cut off some of the branches to use for the bottom.   I think they look really cute and very "Thanksgiving"! :) The "I'm so Grateful for you" sentiment is from an MFT Framed Greetings Die and matching stamp set. I used my Memento Ink in "Black Tuxedo" to stamp this. The rose and cherry blossoms are from I Am Roses and I sprayed them up with my Tattered Angels "Iridescent Gold" to make them nice and shimmery.  The bling is from Recollections.  The paper collection I used is a K&Company "Tim Coffey Holiday" collection. I also used some Green Bazzil cardstock for the background.   I hope you all like my Thanksgiving card!  Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT made for their challenge projects.  Also, come play along! I know you have all made or will be making Thanksgiving cards so why not enter it to win some great prizes?!!! :)  For "Pilgrim Marci" as well as many many more stamps, check out Loves Rubberstamps store.
