30 Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 12

Happy Tuesday!  Today's going to be interesting here in VA, they're mentioning that we may be getting SNOW today, so we'll have to see what happens, this area doesn't really handle snow well so we'll see how it goes, but then again knowing the weather forecast we could see nothing, will definitely liven things up.  Anyway, I'm going back to a fall themed card for today's gratitude challenge. 
The great thing about this card is that other than the Sahara Sand cardbase, all the other pieces of this card came from the Thankful Tablescape Simple Created Kit, I really do love all the pieces in this kit.  For the leaf I crumpled it up and then sponged it with Sahara Sand ink so it's more distressed.  To create the ruffled woodgrain ribbon I just added a strip of sticky strip along the card and then folded the paper over and it holds it perfectly.  I love the softness of the linen thread and it's a perfect accent around all the layers of paper and ribbon.  The greeting is the Thankful single stamp (you can get it was a bundle with the Tablescape Kit and save on both!) and I stamped it with Whisper White craft ink.  I made sure to attach the greeting piece with dimensionals so it could stand up over all the ruffles.
I was telling some friends this weekend, you really need to give this kit a try, it has some fabulous elements that you can't purchase individually so even if you don't want to make place setting items you can create cards, decor, etc.  It's lots of fun, and everything is cut out for you so it's a breeze to create something fabulous.
Enjoy and have a great day!
