Bushel Of Blessings
After each holiday one of the things I do that helps me switch gears and get the creativity flowing for the next holiday is change the table cloth on our kitchen table. My mother-in-law makes the most gorgeous table cloths so it is a special tradition of ours. This past weekend I put away the Halloween table cloth and brought out the Thanksgiving one. The beautiful reds, oranges, and greens in the table cloth inspired me to make this card.
Today's card was created using the back side of the patterned paper I had leftover from the Happy Harmony card. The card base is Always Artichoke layered with a slightly smaller piece of More Mustard cardstock. I punched the edge of a strip of PTI Vintage Cream cardstock using the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Edge Punch then taped it to the edge of the Soothing Floral patterned paper. I wrapped Offray Ribbon around the patterned paper and taped it on the back side before attaching the patterned paper to the card base. I then took another piece of ribbon and tied a knot on the front.
The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI Vintage Cream with the Season Of Thanks stamp set and colored in using Stampin Write Markers and was layered onto a slightly larger piece of Always Artichoke cardstock. To finish off the card I added a couple large Acrylic Jewels.
Hope you have a fantastic day!
P.S. We had 131 trick-or-treaters this year. The costumes were super cute as always and we had tons of fun!
