Give thanks

It's time for another What If? Wednesday Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a sketch for you.  I love a good sketch, it's such a great starting point for a card.  And this one is a good one; so fun!
Here is my card:
The banners in the sketch reminded me of ribbon and I had a couple pieces sitting in my "bits and pieces" stash that were perfect fall colors: yellow and dark brown (every piece used on this card was a scrap; I just cut some of them into smaller pieces).  But then I was faced with the dilemma of where to go from there?  Those ribbons would be lost against any patterned paper and most card stock.  Then I remembered that I had this mini chicken wire die and thought paired with the ribbons that it would add to the autumn look.  I hope you'll join in this week and play along; I can't wait to see your take on this sketch.  
Right now, Repeat Impressions is having a sale; you don't want to miss it.

Totally loving this, Heather! It's gorgeous, and so nice that you used a Thanksgiving theme! Your gift bag was awesome too! We're traveling, and I had no wifi on Monday, but wanted you to know it was wonderful! Happy Thanksgiving!
