Bounty of Blessings

     Friday morning and another new "Anything Goes" challenge over at QKR Stampede.  There is no requirement that you use an image from QKR --any stamp from any company is fine.  But if you decide to use an image from QKR Stampede (or our sister company, Eureka Stamps), your entry will be put into a separate draw for QKR only and that really increases your chance of winning!  Think about it.  :-D

     I decided on a Thanksgiving card today, and I used two images plus a sentiment, all three are from Eureka Stamps:  Pilgrim Boy ES2302, PilgrimGirl ES2303, and Bounty of Blessings.  I merged the Pilgrim images and printed the sentiment separately.

I took some inspiration from this photo at Cupcake Inspirations.

     I colored with ProMarkers, then cut it with a Cross Stitch Rectangle die from Lawn Fawn.  I cut the sentiment with another die from that same set.  Because of the cross stitching on the die, I dug out the dp from my fall holiday stash and used it to make the card front.

     I added two ribbons, one is ribbed grosgrain and the other is a satin with a leaf print on it.  I layered those together and wrapped them around the card front.  I added one of my signature, hand-sewn, bows to which I had added a button.

     This card is going to be mailed so I left it CAS and flat for easy mailing.
