Moving Along with the Times Give Thanks

Claire has set the theme this week over at Moving Along with the Times and she chose 'Give Thanks'. This will cover Thanksgiving in the US and thanks for any other reason. I chose to make a 'thank you for being my friend' card.

The scalloped card blank is by Joanna Sheen. I used a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder to emboss the background sheet of white paper. The Friendship sentiment is a stamp from Bee Crafty. After stamping I cut with a Spellbinders die and raised it as the focal point of the card. I used some Wild Orchid Craft flowers to add to the edge of the sentiment. The leaves are from various dies. The little thank you sentiment was typed on the computer and cut with another, smaller, Spellbinders die.

I'm going to attempt to add to some challenges, if my eyes stay open long enough!

  11. This is such a lovely card! I adore how it is the essence of softness- like the scalloped edges and subtle embossing in the background. It may sound cheesy, but this whole card just feels like a hug! It made me feel peaceful and grateful for all of the good people in my own life. I also love that you added all of those shades of lavender as your accent color. Wonderful work, as always, and I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  12. Your card is just wonderful!
    Thank you for joining Cuttlebug Mania this time!
