Friendship Thanksgiving Card 2 for PPCC no 440 inspiration DT project

Version 2 of an image called "Enjoying the Rain" from Cute As a Button=

This is non-traditional structure with mixed media attempt to do something creatively different than card #1. I decided to morph this into a friendship card for Thanksgiving in November since this makes only the 3rd card thus far I've made for autumn-giving.

In card #1's post at the closure I shared that an online crafting friend from a junk journaling group sent me a box full of her treasures that were cleaned off her desk! Lucky desk! That was 1.5 years ago! I've been hoarding that box of goodies and decided to pull out some items that I thought would work for harvest time:
*mocha textured folded scrap piece on L side
*brown CS backing the sentiment section
*corrugated tag backing the girl with umbrella image
*beige eyelash decorative trim used behind the tag's top

The other printed CS are from an old collection that I don't remember who to credit. The strips of washi tapes are American Crafts' My Mind's Eye, I believe.

Black inking around all the cardstocks except the textured one.

Sentiment was made by me to use this rainy day kind of image for a Thanksgiving friendship card.
