Ribbon Carousel...Give Thanks

Happy Election Day! I do hope that my American friends are going to exercise their civic duty today and go out and vote! It also happens to be the first Tuesday of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Ribbon Carousel blog! This month's theme is Thanksgiving or Fall themed. Fall is one of my favorite four seasons :) so I really did enjoy pulling out some beautiful crushed silky ribbon and making this card here:

I layered a length of brown silky ribbon around the damask panel and then added that pretty yellow bow, also made from silky crushed ribbon. I added a bunch of Zva Creative crystals and also some liquid pearls. The sentiment stamp is from Paper Sweeties' Gobble Gobble set.

Ready to play?!  
This month's theme is
Thanksgiving / Fall

Make a card, a treat box, a scrapbook page, or anything at all for Thanksgiving / Fall and be sure to include some ribbon or twine!  

Each month we are giving away a ribbon carousel 
to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!  

Our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into two teams.  Half of us will kick off the challenge and the other half will show off their projects as a reminder about the challenge 2 weeks later.  
There are three rules to be eligible for the prize:
1.  You MUST use ribbon or twine on your creation 
2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month
3. You must add  a NEW project  to the inlinkz and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery.

You have until November 27th to add your creation to the link.
The random winner of the ribbon carousel will be announced
 on the blog on Monday, December 3rd!
