Good evening
This week at BBTB2 the wonderfully talented Donna chose the Give Thanks cut from the Thanksgiving cartridge as Thanksgiving is just around the corner in the US,
I don't have this cart so after a little searching I found that Designers Calender also has a Give Thanks cut and also a nice maple leaf on the circle shift button.
I cut the base card using the doily card cut from Wildcard cartridge at 5 1/4". The leaf in a circle frame is cut at 4 1/4" twice and I handcut the leaf from the second cut which I then embossed with a Creative Expressions 'Crackle' embossing folder and inked with Ranger Brushed Corduroy ink pad then pop dotted on to the first circle cut. I cut Give Thanks 3 times in gold mirricard and adhereed together. All the papers used are printed from Pink Petticoat Autumn collection download and to finish off I added some gold ribbom and a little heart which I coloured gold with a gold leaf pen.
My DT sisters have made the most beautiful creations this week so  pop over to BBTB2 this week and please join us in the challenge.
Have a great week everyone!

Beautiful card Julie, I see you and Donna had the same shaped card in mind. Love the way you used the leaf and cut the sentiment in gold foil. Very classy card my friend. Missed you last Wed., on chat. Hope to chat soon.
