Meljen's Challenge - Giving Thanks.

Good morning everyone!! And a super Happy Thanksgiving to all of those celebrating :)

Today is the start of a new challenge at Meljen's Designs. For Challenge #188 our theme is Give Thanks! And here is my card:

I have a bunch of scraps from the fall and Thanksgiving cards this year, so I have tried to use them up a bit on this card. All of these are scraps.. How wonderful!! I need to use a whole lot more LOL The ribbon is from my stash.. I've had it no less than 10 years LOL!! So sad! I The 'Thanks' was cut with my Girls Are Weird Sizzlits. I decoupaged some of the cupcake.. the leaves, the frosting, the ribbon and acorn. On the leaf I popped the acorn. For the images I used Autumn Cupcake and Autumn Leaf and Acorn. I colored it all up with Copic.

Copic:
For the Leaf and Acorn -
Leaf: YR23, YR16, YR09, R29
Acorn: E11, E13, E15
Acorn Top: E35, E37, E39

Cupcake -
Frosting: Y12, Y38, YR12, YR18, R24, R29
Leaf: YR23, YR24, YR27
Leaf: YR23, YR16, YR09, R29
Cupcake Holder: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
Cake: Y11, Y15, Y19
Acorn: E11, E13, E15
Acorn Top: E35, E37, E39
Ribbon: YG11, YG13, YG17
