Mojo Monday Challenge #160

Hurry, the Halloween Blog Candy give-a-way closes Saturday, Oct. 16th @ midnight. Post your comment on either/both 'Halloween Candy' posts. Post your answer to the question and register as a follower. Winners announced Sunday, prizes mailed Monday!

I made my card. But, I have to be honest, I used the sketch to make my sample for my card club. If you are a member of the Stampalicious Card Club, this is the Thanksgiving card we are making at club this week. This card is loaded with techniques! The sentiment is heat embossed, and its in Soft Suede (I'll show you how to make your own color craft ink). The wheat is stamped following the heat embossing - emboss resist! The cajun craze piece is dry embossed! Yahoo! We get to use the Big Shot and a new embossing folder! Oh, and we will be doing a little sponging, too!
I used crumb cake, cajun craze, old olive, and more mustard as my colors. Very vanilla is a neutral, it doesn't really count, does it? Two stamp sets: Autumn days, and seasonal sentiments. The new Vintage Wall paper embossing folder and my totally favorite border punch! scallop trim border punch.
I wanted my Thanksgiving card to look grown-up. I think it does. Tell me what you think. (oh, and if you look closer, my words are crooked. I know.)
Halloween themed blog candy! go to post(s) Halloween Candy, and follow the directions! Don't forget to post your answer to the question in the comments, and good luck!

Nice work! This is one of my favorites in the challenge because it's clean and simple and not too busy or overly done with all the extra embellishments (as is so often is the case). Well done!
