Give Thanks Fall Greeting Card

I know it's been a whole week.  Life has taken some interesting turns over the last week.  My husband had a heart stress test as a precaution since his brother who is just a few years older than him had a heart attack at 40.  Well that didn't go so well.  They found two areas of his heart have reduced blood flow, so Friday they did an angio gram to determine if there is blockage causing the reduced flow.  Thankfully, the angio gram didn't find enough blockage to cause the issues, but unfortunately, now we're back at square one to find out what is causing the issues.  Please keep my hubby in your thoughts and prayers as well as the doctors, so they can find out the problem.

Weather here in Minnesota was very crisp and a bit chilly.  PERFECT!  I love this weather, and this time of year.  I love the start of the holidays, so I decided to start on my fall cards.  Today's is a card that reads Give Thanks on the front, and on the inside I stamped "The truest measure of out thanksgiving is how we use the blessings for which we give thanks."

 For a simple card, I used three different Stampin Up sets.  The sentiment on the bottom right is from Holiday Best.  The leaves on the top left are from Lovely as a Tree, and the sentiment inside is from Grateful Greetings.
 The base of the card is Old Olive, with stamping on Very Vanilla.  There are layers of Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Ink, and Pumpkin Pie ribbon.  I don't recall the pattern paper maker.
 I used buttons and twine from my stash to make the cluster of buttons on the right side.
 here is a look at the stamped sentiment inside.

Here is a look at the dimension that the ribbon and buttons add.

Thanks for looking!
