For my card today, I thought I would share something I made for Thanksgiving.  First, I made my own decorative paper by stamping the Dotted Argyle Cover a Card Background onto some XPress It Copic paper using black Memento ink.  I then colored the squares with various Copic Markers to create a Fall plaid background.

For the focal part of the card, I stamped the Sunny Bracket Frame onto the bottom of a rectangle piece of watercolor paper.  After I colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, I cut out the bottom part of the frame (the part on the sides of the brads and under the brads) with a combination of scissors and an Xacto knife.  I cut out just the bottom of the frame and layered it onto my background so that I wouldn't have to cut around the small details of the flower.  I really hate fussy cutting!

To finish the card, I added the Give Thanks sentiment to the center of the frame.
 
The other designers also have lots of ideas to share, so don't forget to visit them!
