Thanksgiving Wishes


This card was made for a challenge at MFP Speedy TV which called for any type of holiday card. I chose Thanksgiving as my holiday creation.

I started out with GKD Sweet Mango card stock for my base card. I added a layer of brown from PTI.  Next I die cut a panel in white card stock using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and then layered it with some fall digital paper. This was then adhered to the brown layer. 

The wheelbarrow is an image from GKD Beyond Baskets stamp set and the pumpkins are from GKD Heartfelt stamp set.  These were colored with Copics and then popped onto the background. 

The sentiment was computer generated and then cut out with Spellbinders Distressed Edges die, sponged while still in the die, and then popped on with demensionals.

That's two holiday season cards in one day....and in the middle of July! Is this wishful thinking that this torrid summer be over???

Hope you're having a summery day!
