FFC #17 "Autumn"

This is my 2nd Post today!
Click Here for Cardz TV's "Jars, Jams & Jellies" Linky Party Challenge

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.
 This week's Challenge:
DT Host Week
Amanda's Choice
Create a card,layout or project with an Autumn theme:
Our sponsor this week is:

 One lucky winner will receive a stamp set of their choice!! So make sure to play along this week~
Starts: Friday, September 13th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, September 20th 6:00PM
(central time)
 Here is what I created for this challenge:
When I think of fall or Autumn, I think of acorns, different color leaves and the festivities that come along that time of the year like Halloween, visits to the farm for pumpkin picking, Thanksgiving, Black Friday Sales and baking. I was excited that this week's challenge theme was Autumn.
 I automatically thought of Thanksgiving and so I created this Thanksgiving card. My card is a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card standing upright. The cardstock used was Recollections and the patterned paper is from the Harvest Stack from Me & My Big Ideas. I kept this card simple. The peacock die cut and the sentiment label die cut are from S.E.I. I colored the peacock in with prisma colored pencils to bring out the autumn colors of the season. I love how this turned out!
My sentiment was combined by using two different stamp sets from Cardz TV Stamps. I used the stamp set "Happy Days" for the sentiment, "Happy Thanksgiving" and I used the set, "Encouraging Thoughts" for the "Blessings". I stamped the sentiments in "Vineyard Berry" ink from CTMH. To finish the card off I wrapped some twine around the card and tied it off in a knot. I hope you like!
Here is a close up of the peacock.

Now let's see what the FFC Design Team has created for this Challenge:
