Thanksgiving Greetings

     A couple of weeks ago, I saw this card on Jane Willis's blog, Onions and Paper, and was so impressed with it that I just had to CASE it!  Thanks for the inspiration, Jane!

I love the simple design, striking background paper,
and wonderful autumn theme.

     Here's how I used that inspiration.

     The sentiment/image is from my growing collection of Victorine Originals stamps.  I actually added the little pumpkins on each side (also Victorine) so the main stamp is the sentiment.

     I used ProMarkers to color, then cut it into the long rectangle.  I inked the edges to make it stand out.  The argyle plaid paper is a digital paper and I really don't remember from what company.  It was a leftover scrap large enough to cover my card front and had gorgeous autumn colors.

    After putting on the sentiment piece, I added glittered ribbon above and below and knew instantly that the card was finished.  


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Nana, it's interesting when you Case a project, how your inspiration leads you into the same direction but different results. Beautiful card and loving the plaid background. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and please come back and share a "Creature Great or Small" with Double Trouble and Brown Sugar.

Firstly apologies for the lateness of this comment, it's been one of those months. I love your take on the inspiration you found, that central image goes so well with the background. Thanks for sharing with us at Path of Positivity. Pippa DT
