Sketch, Colors and Thankful Challenges


I was inspired to make one more Thanksgiving card because of a new challenge blog and website I just discovered. Check out this sketch and color inspiration at My Creative Time:


Aren't those great inspirations? I love the sketch and color selection. Then I checked out The My Creative Time website here - oh my, so many yummy dies and stamp sets! I want them all!

I used the cream color to make the card front with a Sizzix fall embossing folder, and attached to a brown card base. Then I cut circles and scribble circles in gold, burgandy and green with QuicKutz and Paper Trey Ink dies. I added a gold cord bow and some sequins to complete the card.

I am also entering this card in the Thankful challenge at Raisin Boat and the Grateful challenge at Open-Minded Crafting.
