Vintage Card Cafe...Channeling Thanksgiving

Hmm, me thinks it's a bit early to think about Thanksgiving cards, but I recently purchased these lovely papers by Authentique and wanted desperately to make something with's my sample for the Vintage Card Cafe Challenge based on the sketch provided by them:

 The sentiment is from Verve's Plain Jane, Grateful Heart. The dried flowers came exactly as pictured,  I just glued them onto the grosgrain bow. The lace was gathered and glued under the ribbon before I tied the ribbon up. I cut the bottom of the Romantic Rectangle focal panel off so that the piece would fit. 

You can view the sketch here.

Here's the Verve stamp I used:
