Thankful for...

     I love doing Thanksgiving cards because it gives me the opportunity to list the things for which I'm grateful and there are lots of things.  This card is one I did for the newest challenge at Through the Craft Room Door this week.  And guess what?  The sponsor is Deedee's Digi's -- one of the other teams on which I serve.  How wonderful to be able to use one of Deedee's lovely digis for the TTCRD challenge (always Anything Goes.)  :-D  The image and the sentiment on this card both came from her "Harvest Blessings" set.


I took my colors from Pals Paper Arts.

PPA222 Early Espresso Calypso Coral So Saffron

     Colored with ProMarkers and fussy cut.  The leaves came from Jolee's and the bow is one I had to dye with a ProMarker to get the color I wanted.  I added the rose to the bow.

     Challenges:

A Creative Need

     I'm so happy with this card!  I laid it out several different ways and liked this one the best.  :-D  Happy Stamping, my friends and followers.  NanaConnie
