I made a thanksgiving card to celebrate all the good things in life. Sure, things don't usually turn out the way we want them to, but I believe everything happens for a reason. And we truly have much to be thankful for... a lot more than we care to admit!
|I made a 5" square card with a punched border. The papers are by Basic Grey's "Pyrus" 6x6 pad - now discontinued. I distressed the edges and applied TM's Vintage Photo. The greeting by WMS, heat embossed in black.|
|I used plenty of foam tape for dimension. For embellies - some sheer orange ribbon and green bling.|
|The focal image is by WMS coloured with Graph'It markers. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circle dies.|
|On the inside I stamped a few falling leaves... it is autumn, after all!|
