Harvest festival stateside style

In the UK when it gets to this time of year many schools and churches will be starting their harvest festival collections to be later distributed to those in the community in need or the elderly. In the USA they do have a similar celebration in November but for a slightly different reason and they have a national holiday to celebrate and they call it thanksgiving.



Mum has friends in the USA and so I made this card for her to send to them. I think the image is from Beccy's place but am only guessing as it was another that I never got around to using when I received it in a stamp image swap and again there was no name or company on the reverse.

I coloured the image with promarkers , then fussy cut the image. I layered the image on 3 different bird's cards free papers which I cut to shape using one of the free templates from Lily of the valley. I used a square base card which I made into a shaped card using the same templates.


The sentiment is hand written.

I would like to enter this chard into the following challenges:-
