My OCS card for Shirley

Happy Thanksgiving!! A busy day for all of us who have to cook and clean the house, which is me! My tradition is that I have to make the pumpkin pies and then the turkey and this year, I'm making the mashed potatoes...My sister will be bringing the rest of the meal..
I wanted to share with you the card I made for one of my OCS partners, Shirley, for November...As you know and saw on a couple posts back, Shirley makes such beautiful cards, so I wanted to be sure that I made something special for her. I came up with this card... I love this character. I know some people don't cuz he's kind of goofy with those eyes, but I think that's what makes him cute!
The card opens up like this...the scalloped circle is a nestie.
Here's a close up of the inside panel. The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets from last holiday (retired now). The corner flourishes is from the Patterned Pines stamp set, which is a level 1 Free hostess set (from the Holiday Mini Catalog). I just love the finishing touches these corner flourishes made to my card. The background paper is from the Holiday Christmas Cocoa DSP pack and I just love the velvet on this paper! Ribbon is the wide striped grosgrain by SU.
Shirley, I hope you liked my card! Thank you for the card you made for me, I loved it! Enjoy your holiday today! Thanks for your visit on this Thanksgiving Day. I am thankful for all of YOU!
