Something to be thankful for

Good morning,  I have a story behind my showcase card today - We are due to get new neighbors a single mom and her 2 daughters, they were supposed to move in last weekend however due to things outside of her control the sale of her house is taking longer than she expected and the move hasn't happened. She has packed up her belongings and is worried that she won't be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with her little girls as they are living with next to no cooking utensils or furniture.
We have great neighbors and they are always doing things to help out so I decided so pay this forward and have invited our soon to be neighbors for Thanksgiving dinner.
What better way to invite them than using So Suzy Stamps for an invitation:
I have used the Pumpkin Swirl stamp which I have colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers I added some color to the swirls to make them blend in with the image. I typed and printed the wording on my pc. I then used orange sheer ribbon across the top of the image card and rounded the corners so it would blend better with the scalloped card blank I used. I matted this onto some brown card and added some Lawn Fawn orange enamel dots. A very simple design but I think it turned out very pretty!
