Thanksgiving Decor

I made this plaque for a Thanksgiving/autumn basket for our scholarship auction.  I am also putting in a pumpkin spice jar candle (for which I may or may not make a label--haven't decided yet, probably will) and a box of pumpkin bread mix.



I was inspired by an item I saw in the Nov/Dec issue of PaperCrafts magazine, or possibly their holiday issue.  I am, after six years, letting my subscription lapse.  I think I can get more and better inspiration from the internet.  
I used a Basswood Round from Michael's.  I used the Thanksgiving seasonal cartridge and my Gypsy to cut the phrase out of dark brown vinyl.  I cut it at 8" wide, which works out to be 3.13" tall.  I hot-glued wired ribbon (LOVE that stuff!) and a fall floral pick from Mike's to finish it up.  I'm also including the easel.  I like how this turned out.  If no one else bids on it, I just might get it for myself LOL!

Thanks for dropping by today.  Have a creative day!
