IO Challenge- Thanksgiving Wishes
Greetings everyone. I am so excited that the challenge today is Thanksgiving cards. I know I shouldn't be shocked, but when I was at CVS the day after Halloween, they were taking down the Halloween candy and putting out the Christmas candy. When did we stop celebrating fall? I love it, and want to enjoy every moment of it.
For today's card, I used some of Impression Obsession's newer images. I stamped the French Text Pear (D9397) onto watercolor paper and then colored it with Peerless watercolors. I then added the new Oak background (CC181 Oak). The saying is an older one that I seem to use every year. It just encapsulates what I want to say for Thanksgiving. (May the Bounty D6043).
To finish the card, I used a scrap of paper that had the CC182 Vines Vertical and CC049 Screen Cover a Card backgrounds stamped onto it. I used that paper on another card, but I had saved the decorative scrap because I knew one day I would use it. I love it when that happens!
