Give Thanks- The Kraft Journal Make It Monday 148

Happy Monday and welcome to another Make It Monday Challenge at The Kraft Journal blog! This week's challenge is So Thankful. Create a project or cad with the theme and be sure to include a kraft item or anything that can be purchased at The Kraft Outlet store.
For this week's So Thankful challenge,I  made this quick and easy Thanksgiving card. I started with a base from Lunch Bag Cover Weight Kraft Card Stock. After scoring and folding ,I adhered a strip of wide chevron ribbon across the center using wide red line tape. I stamped a wreath onto a Small Glassine Bag, filled it with sequins and glitter in fall colors and stitched around the edges for contrast. After stamping a sentiment on Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Stock ,I die cut it into a banner. Using Natural Burlap Ribbon,I fashioned a relaxed bow, frayed the ends,and adhered it to the card with hot glue as shown. After threading a pumpkin button with some hemp cording from the Dark  Jewel Hemp Cord pack,Kristi adhered it to the center of the bow.She added the sentiment banner to the bow using a Memo Pin.I finished off my card by adding another hemp cord threaded button  to the center of the wreath.
