Happy Thanksgiving


Here's a card that has an autumn feel with a colorful leaf. The leaf is a Spellbinder's diecut that was sponged with colors and curled around a pencil before popping it up on foam tape. The acorns are also die-cuts from SB, done on brown cardstock and dotted with a picket fence distress marker while still in the die. I tied them on with some gold cord from my stash. The lower panel was a piece of BoBunny dsp, embossed with a Darice die and sponged with fired brick ink. The top panel is from the same BoBunny dsp pad. I added a snippet of ribbon and a Lil' Inker stitched rectangle die-cut thanksgiving sentiment that was heat-embossed with white on black.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Great card with this nice fall colors. That leaf look totally real. At least you are working on the right holiday, not like me jumping ahead to Christmas today. Have a wonderful day.

Been picking up leaves for real in the garden today but not as pretty as this one. I like how you have attached the accorns with the cord and that darice embossing folder on the lower part of the card is to die for. Love ,love the colour. hugs Mrs A.
