Here is the card by itself.
The card sits in a vellum pocket on the front of the bag. I used a Stampsmith stamp for the main image. It is a Paris scenic image form the Paris Full Sheet which I stamped with a Kaleidacolor pad and covered with UTEE. I sliced the image into 3 equal pieces and layered. I used a Stampin' Up leaf stamp to make the background. The leaves were stamped in Always Artichoke, Really Rust, More Mustard, and Ruby Re (SU). Card stock is Always Artichoke, Really Rust, Barely Banana (SU) and glossy white. The DP on the bag is Green flocked from Me and My Big Ideas. Here are some close ups.
On the inside I added Thanksgiving Sentiments from Stampin' Up.

For the Inspiration Tag game you could use any of the following elements: Color Scheme, rustic style, scenic stamp, Thanksgiving, Speciality inks, time theme, masking (I used this on the pocket watch stamp), or using ribbon.
I added a Thanksgiving sentiment on the inside (SU). The Happy Thanksgiving stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly.
