Thanks


Today over at Blogger's Challenge we are "Giving Thanks".  

I have lots of things to be thankful for, a wonderful family, good health, a job that I like, great friends, and so much more.  

This card was actually created for the Paper Crafts call to make your own background with stamps and I have to say this is one of my most favorite cards I've made in awhile.  I adore this color combination and love how this came together with the Quick2Border set from The {Stamps} of Life.

The bloom was made from the Sizzix Flower Framelits, I wrinkled the paper a bit, die cut the flower and sponged over the crinkles.  This large jewel is one of my favorites that I picked up at a stamp show from Bo Bunny.

Hope you will join us over at Blogger's Challenge and show how you "Give Thanks".  I'm busy wrapping up some cards for the Hope You can Cling To Challenges at SCS, I didn't finish all the challenges, but I had fun with the ones I did finish and am sending over a bunch more that I had not done anything with-they all go to a wonderful cause.

This is one amazing card, I can see how it is a favorite of yours. I also made a card for this category but it isn't as awesome as yours, will show mine soon. Beautiful mix of colors, the blue just pops!
