C4C6 Truly Thankful

Happy Saturday Everyone! This week over at the Crazy4Challenges blog, Vicki challenges us to create a card with a thankful theme since she, along with all of our Canadian friends are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. I created a card that simply says "thanks." I embossed the foil with the Cuttlebug Victorian ef and layered it on PTI dsp. The floral image from Echoes of Kindness was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and colored with Tombows. Stickles were added for a little sparkle. I scored around the edges for a little interest and the sentiment was stamped with perfect plum. A few silver pearls (thanks Silke) were added as a finishing touch.
That's it for me today..........we're dachshund sitting for a neighbor and having our granddaughter over for the day. It all begins at 7:30 am, so I've gotta get in gear!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
