"Thankful" Card

I made this card today for several challenges.  I wanted to use one of my new Tim Holtz Thanksgiving folders I got at the Scrapbook Expo this last weekend. 
For the card shape I used page 77 of A Child' Year cartridge cut at 7 inches.  
I then did a cut search for acorns and found this cute little acorn with a leaf on Holiday Cakes page 31 which was cut at 2 inches,   I also cut the leaf border which is two layers at 1.75 inches.  I didn't like it as a border so I cut it apart,  The leaves and acorn top were embossed.  The acorn is pop dotted.  I used some dyed seam binding ribbon I also got at the Expo.  To highlight the word Thankful I  embossed and cut it out of craft stock paper and layered it over the embossed and distressed piece.  
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
