A Bountiful Harvest

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well yesterday was my birthday and a great day it was. My hubby took me to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then to the Benedum Center for the presentation of the lion King.
We had never been to the Cheesecake Factory and it was on the way to the theater. We had a good dinner but it took so long to get our food that we didn't have time to try one of their desserts. Probably for the best anyway, since we had enough food for dinner.
The Lion King was amazing with the costumes, music and great seats to take it all in. If this production comes to your city, it's definitely worth the price of the tickets.

Now onto my card for today. I am showing another Thanksgiving card. I made this one a 5" square. I used the Wednesday sketch at Splitcoaststampers SC453 challenge. Janette is our hostess and she provided a great layout for my thanksgiving card. 

My background paper is from DCWV's "harvest gathering" collection.
For my large circle I used a Spellbinders die cut in pumpkin and naturals ivory cardstock. Sponged the ivory with crumb cake ink and stamped my Verve sentiment in choc chip.

For the 2 other sketch circles I used an acorn (sizzix die) and a pumpkin (cuttlebug die). I added some burlap ribbon from David Tutera to complete my card. 
Well that's it for me for another day. It's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......
