Gratitude - What R U Grateful 4 today?

What a cute gift for your Thanksgiving host or for yourself to sit in your home as a part of your Thanksgiving decorations!
I love these little frames I got at the local Target in the $2.50 bin they came with 3 in a pack.
The NEW Autumn Spice Textured Designer Paper is perfect for making the background in the frame then I added some 3-D texture by adding some leaves in More Mustard &Cajun Craze embossed them with the BIG SHOT embossing folder to give them some depth and I stamped some leaves from the NEW stamp set Days of Gratitude in cajun craze and cut them out and placed them stemming out from the sentiment also from Days of Gratitude. I used the wide oval punch and the NEW Decorative Label punch(HMC).
then I added some Expresso 1 1/2 " wide striped ribbon and rope twine to embellish the corner on the outside of the frame.
