Thanksgiving/Fall Card

I haven't made any Thanksgiving cards in the past, but I recently purchased a Sampler Cartridge called Winter's in the Air Holiday, and it has images for the holiday season soon upon us (Thanksgiving, Christmas,and Halloween) among other cuts.  It actually includes images from a variety of existing cartridges, a few of which I already own.  I didn't realize that until I opened it, but it seems there are more images that I don't have than I do have on this cartridge, so still a worthwhile purchase.  Here's my card...

And here's how I made it:
This is a 5x7 cream colored card.
Patterned paper is Cloud 9 Design--Harvest, Halloween, Christmas Photo Mats
Brown satin ribbon
From my new Winter's in the Air Holiday cart, the turkey is cut at 2-1/2", the corn at 1-3/4", and the pumpkin is actually from Celebrate with Flourish at 1-3/4"
Stamp is a $1.00 stamp from Joann's.
Added some bling on the ribbon and some fall leaf brads in the upper corners.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion - Fall with a pumpkin
Karens Kakes Krafts - Thanksgiving card
Wacky Wednesdays - Buttons, Bling, Brads
Simply Crafts - create a critter turkey or any turkey

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate it!
