Thanksgiving at Lexi's

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi' s Creations and the theme for this challenge is Thanksgiving or Thanks.  We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the United Kingdom so I have gone with the thanks:

A very simple card but I thought the sentiment was so lovely I wouldn't detract from that.  The sentiment is by Lexi and is available at Fairydust Crafts. I have cut it out with my Nesties and matted it on some gold cardstock cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The fancy bits are from Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs.  The paper is from Little Black Dress by Basic Grey. The pearl border is a pearl string from my stash.  Our sponsor this challenge is:

Please go over to Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the Design Team have made.

Thanks for visiting today, take care xx
