Thankful For You

Second post for me today.  If you're looking for my Thomas Kincade post, please scroll down one.

This week is Thanksgiving here in the States, so I decided to make a quick and easy Thanksgiving card to show another type of clean and simple that's easy to duplicate.

I started out by stamping my image from one of  Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company's mini sets called Count Your Blessings in memento tuxedo black onto snow storm smooth card stock before coloring with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.  Once my coloring was finished, I lightly stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass and forest moss distress inks around the sides of the image before layering and adding some pumpkin brads.  Then I stamped the leaf from Oh Happy Day in pumpkin pie ink directly onto the card before adding my layered image and saying.  The only other embellishment added was some fall colored Michael's bridal confetti flowers from my stash with bling stickers.
