Thanksgiving Card

I made this Thanksgiving card using this adorable fall image from Karen's Doodles called Pumpkin Mailbox. I colored the image using both crayola and prisma colored pencils. Then I sponged brown ink around the image and on the sentiment. The pumpkin I used on my raffia bow is a button. To use it on my card I just cut the shank off the back of it. To finish off my card I added 3 pearls to the upper right corner.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
