Thanksgiving Somethings ~ Challenge

From the blog:
We have a new challenge for you this week, one in honor of being thankful. Here in the United States we'll be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday next week so we thought what better challenge than one for giving thanks, saying thank you, or celebrating this holiday. Please make a project having something to do with THANKS. It can be a card, a scrapbook page, a 3d item, anything you wish.

From me:
This is the card I came up with. I want to know how you all get great pictures of your cards! I know my camera stinks but it's not THIS bad! lol

I used River rock cardstock along with some patterned paper for fall. The circle is tinged with Kiwi Kiss using a blender pen on the sides. The leaves are done in basic black and colored in with more mustard. I stamped the basket of leaves with really rust and colored it in with Gable Green and Sahara Sand. The inside says "Give thanks for the simple things in life". I stamped the 3 leaves on the envelope as well.


Paper: SU River Rock, Markings 4 seasons
Stamps: SU Give Thanks
Ink: Kiwi Kiss and (All SU Stampin Writes) More Mustard, Really Rust, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Gable Green
Other: SU On Board Simon Upper Case, Blender Pen
