Happy Thanksgiving card for PTI August Blog Hop

It's time for the PTI August Blog Hop!  I'm getting a jump on my Thanksgiving cards and Nuttie the squirrel makes another appearance!

Here is the sketch/color combo I used:

I have to admit that I don't have all these colors (an excuse to order more paper), so I replaced Limeaid Ice with Spring Moss, Fine Linen with Vintage Cream and for Canyon Clay I found a small scrap of bright orange card stock that I have no idea where it came from but it works!  Here's my card:

Ingredients: PTI Nuts for You, Happy, Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle Dies
