A Thankful Heart

This started out to be a Fall-themed card, but I think Gratitude is a good idea all year ‘round . . .
Once again, I am irresistibly drawn to tags, especially when the color Kraft is in town.  And when a woodgrain image and texture gets added to the mix, I am powerless to resist . . .

 I made an interesting discovery with this wonderful tag die:  if I run it through the machine once, I get debossed holes.  If I run it through twice, I get actual holes.  I love both options and am happy to have a choice as to which look goes best with my layout.  Details, always the details . . .
