A Piece of Pie

With Thanksgiving tomorrow I know many of you are counting your blessings and so am I.  There is something that has been near and dear to my heart for many years and that is our soldiers who are serving our country. When I saw this image from Meljen's called "pink ribbon teddy" the ideas started running through my head on how to use this cutie. I found this sentiment in my stamps and immediately knew I was pairing these to together, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Service & Sacrifice set.

Now the challenge this week at Cooking It Up With Katie is "a piece of the pie"- no we don't mean projects using pies so what is that you may ask?  Our recipe is as follows: "Use a punch, add some ink, and finish with some embossing." I used my Nesties for my punch to feature sentiment, inked all my edges, and used my Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder on my yellow paper.  Come one over and our challenge HERE for your chance to win the prize from our sponsor Meljen's Designs.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Meljen's- fall
Crafty Purple Frog- orange
Forever Friends-something old, something new (old embossing folder, new image)
Rainbow Lady's-Thanksgiving
Sassy Studios- thank you card
Shelly's Images- anything goes
Southern Girls- bingo (ribbon, gems, die cuts)
