Thanksgiving Card with Rays

This card was sparked by a technique challenge on the Paper Wishes Message Board.  The challenge was to make a card using rays for the background as described here. Because I knew I wanted to make a Thanksgiving card, I decided to use yellow card stock instead of white and make my rays a variety of oranges, browns, golds and coppers (inks from various stamp pads).  I also inked the edge with copper.

The focal is the Pumpkin Small Stamp from Hot Off the Press. I stamped it in copper and then colored it in with metallic cream chalks. The sentiment was stamped (also in copper) with stamps I made using my Stampmaker. The focal and mat (autumn leaves paper) were die cut using my Resplendent Rectangles set (from Spellbinders).  A bit of ribbon and some tiny accent stickers for the upper corners, and I was done.
