UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge #161

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another sketch challenge on the UDI blog.  November's sketches are brought to us by Ruthie!  Here's the first one. 

I stuck with the sketch and created a simple Thanksgiving card.  I was asked to make a card with a 5th grade class for the Great American Teach-In, and I am thinking of using this one.  What do you think?  The base is Sahara Sand embossed with the Houndstooth folder.  The strip is Always Artichoke and Autumn Traditions DSP.  It's retired, but I'm sure the 10-year olds won't care..  ;)   The medallion is from the Perfect Pennants die.  I also used the 1 3/8" and 1 3/4" Circle punches.  The leaf and sentiment are from the set, Falling Leaves.  The sentiment was punched with the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch.  Easy peasy.  

Head on over to the UDI blog to see what the other team members have created for you today. 

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Falling Leaves.  Ink- Always Artichoke.  Paper- Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Autumn Traditions DSP (retired).  Accessories-  Big Shot, Houndstooth embossing folder, Perfect Pennants die, 1 3/8" and 1 3/4" Circle punches, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch.
