Chalked Thanksgiving card

This Sizzix EF is great for Thanksgiving/fall cards.  I cut the embossed piece a bit to fit an A2 card.  Since I wanted to try coloring in more detail than I usually do, I decided not to add embellishments, and I stamped the JustRIte sentiment (in rust) directly on the main layer.   I sponged a number of different colors of chalk (SU)  - blues and browns for the sky and edges, various fall colors for the leaves, and of course orange for the pumpkins.
