OWH Any Hero Thanksgiving Card 8-25-11

I've been missing in action a little this week - but I guess better late than never.  I had a pasta party for the whole cross country team on Monday, and then on Tuesday I had some dental surgery so I have been spending time resting.  I felt like I was missing out on all the fun - the sketch challenge and then the mid week throw down - so I had to get back into the grove and make something!  Here is my Any Hero Thanksgiving Card. 

I know these aren't traditional fall colors - and I won't blame that on the pain killers.  I really loved the wheat design on the patterened paper by My Mind's Eye and went from there.  I used a pearl gold paper for the wheat die cut, and the light blue oval paper is Coordinations Gemstones so it has a pearl shine as well.  The wheat die cut is from the Cricut Thanksgiving Solutions Cartridge.  I haven't been using him (yes I call my Cricut Crick-EE and yes it is a him) in a while so I had to dust him off.

I hope you like it - I had lots of fun making it!
