Give Thanks

Hello Blogging Friends,

Well November has surely flown by!  I can't believe that Thanksgiving is going to be here in just a few days!!  I want to share with you this Thanksgiving card that I am entering several challenges listed below.

Here is my card:


Various paper from my stash
Peeled Paint distress ink
Antique Linen distress ink

For this A2 card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of patterned paper and cut the edge with the Penny Black Border Edgers die, inked the edges with Peeled Paint distress ink and added that to the card.  Next I took my Cottage Cut Autumn Centerpiece die and cut it out several different times with different paper and then pieced it all together and added it to the card.  I inked the edges of the candles with Anique Linen distress ink.  I stamped the "give thanks" sentiment from the Sugar Pea Designs Fall Fox stamp set with black ink in the upper left corner, then I inked the edges of the Kraft card stock with Peeled Paint distress ink.  I have had this die for sometime now, but this was the first time I ever cut it out and I absolutely love it!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:


What If? Wednesday Challenge at the House That Stamps Built.

The Color Q Challenge #368

Dragonfly Journeys Challenge #79 ~ A Thankful Heart

Die Cuttin Divas:  Challenge #292 ~ Thanksgiving
