Happy Thanksgiving

Happy two days before Thanksgiving - I don't work tomorrow or Friday so I am feeling quite happy. It is nice to have a long week end especially when you spend part of the time on the road visiting family. Just sent two cards for Thanksgiving - one to each of my daughters - since I will not be spending Thanksgiving with them.
This card uses a copy of a vintage postcard. I brightened up the color of the image by using my Prismacolors. Just added some depth. The design for the card was based on the sketch challenge at Our Creative Corner. I also did the challenge on the Basic Grey Challenge blog which was to do embossing. The green strip is embossed with the Cuddlebug Swiss Dot folder - it is hard to see but the stripe was embossed with the Cuddlebug Argyle folder. My striped side was the negative side of the embossed argyle so it is hard to see.
Everyone have a wonder and safe Thanksgiving.
