Thankful Card with Scraps

I use nearly as many Thanksgiving cards as Christmas cards, so I like to work on them throughout the year.  Today's card features the use of scraps - medium sized scraps and little bits of scraps.

The medium sized scraps are the ones I used to create blocks of color on the green cardstock.  The little bits were used with some Dazzles stickers to create some embellishments.  If you look closely at the acorn and the small leaves, you can see that I placed these stickers on little scraps of colored paper and then cut close to the outline of the stickers.  I daubed a little ink to create more color variance before mounting them.  Add a purchase focal and a couple other Dazzles stickers (sentiment & corner embellishment) and I had a quick Thanksgiving card.
