It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC43)! It is the last Tuesday of the month and we have a guess challenge host for you. This month our challenge host is Carol Lee. Please give her a warm welcome! We are so thrilled to have Carol host with us. Carol is challenging us to themed cards. Since this week we celebrate Thanksgiving as well as kick off the Christmas Season, Carol is challenging us to Thank You and/or Christmas themed cards. You can choose one theme or create one of each. Or like many, you may need to finish up a few Christmas cards in time for mailing next week. Whichever you choose, we look forward to seeing what you create! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

This card is also for today's SCS Color Challenge(CC246)! It is all about Pretty Olive Bays! We are to use Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, and Bermuda Bay! We have a dessert option this week. We are using plaids..totally optional, of course!!

I am using Flourishes Christmas Wreath and Fancy Labels sets. This particular Christmas Wreath is done with fruits, but I wanted to make them look like ornaments. After I colored, I used dottings of the stardust pen over the ornaments to give them some sparkle. Love how it looks IRL.

To see what the rest of the blog design team created for you this week with the challenge, please click the blog links below to check them out.
