With Gratitude...

Once again, if you are here for my Stop and Scrap giveaway, click HERE, or just scroll down. (You really don't want to miss it - I promise!)

Here with Thanksgiving just over, I had a a couple of challenges that I still wanted to enter, and wanted to kind of wrap up Thanksgiving a little more before I headed into Christmas time - by focusing on gratitude. So, here is what I came up with:

Started off with a PTI texture plate and ran the card base through my Cuttlebug. Cut some additional frame shapes from Elegant Edges using my Cricut, and embossed the first one, and inked the edges of them both up with some Tim Holtz distress ink. Stamped the sentiment from a Gina K. Designs set that I won on the Moxie Fab world a while back (gotta love a good prize!)

I added some PTI buttons underneath them, and used a leaf leftover from another project, also inked with the Tim Holz distress ink. Finished off with some PTI twine, and pop-dotted the frames from the card base.

I love the non-traditional colors, the Basic Grey Paper, and all the texture!

So, the challenges I am entering this is are first of all the Cricut Circle Monthly challenge: use some image that symbolizes Fall for you (which for me was the leaf) and texture. I am also entering this as a second entry on LaVikingascrapp to make something with Basic Grey or Graphic 45 paper. And finally, I am entering this in the Paper Crafts November 2011 Gallery Challenge: Thanksgiving inspired projects.
