Thankful

Hi there and welcome!

A card to share for the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. The theme for our challenge this time is “Thankful” with a beautiful photo for inspiration. You are welcome to submit any type of project and remember only our name is ‘shabby’, your design need not be! Our sponsor for this challenge is Great Impressions Rubber Stamps , but for more information hop over to The Shabby Tea Room.

For my card I used a stamp from Impression Obsession to create the wooden planks for the background .Taking inspiration from the photo, I used the autumn colors and also burlap and cord. I’ve used several different dies on this card for the embellishments and listed them in my project details. I added some flourishes, leaves, butterflies and roses in shades of brown. The sentiment is from a Sizzix stamp and Framelits die set and the lovely window die from Spellbinders. Hope this card will inspire you to create something for our challenge!
