Avocado Arts: Thankful for You

The September, Thankful for You stamp set from Avocado arts is now available.  So today the design team is showcasing cards/projects using this fun fall set.  It has cute images, a few background builders, and great sentiments.  For my card, I kept it clean and graphic, using the chevron/ric rac background builder, and sentiment paired with some October Afternoon paper.  Looking at the card now, I probably should have added some twine, or even another button/bling in one of the corners so that the card "flows" better.  But, all in all, I still like the card.  I used my favorite color combination (red/yellow), and it will still make a great thank you card.  
Visit the rest of the design team to see their projects, and if you want to see this set in full head on over to the Avocado Arts website.
