Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge Meets 30-Day Gratitude Challenge: Another Thank You

Welcome Wednesday!  I’ve been enjoying a busy but productive week so far, there’s a lot I want to take care of before Thanksgiving so I’m trying to fit it all in or make up project kits to take with me (if you see my car on the highway on Wednesday afternoon I’ll be the one making Christmas cards in the passenger seat, haha!)  I today I’m sharing two different projects this is my 30-Day Gratitude card challenge card and I have another project that you’ll have to come back to enjoy.  Today I decided to play along with the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch challenge to provide some fresh inspiration for today’s card.  I used Pool Party for the cardbase and then embossed a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock with the Big Shot and Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder before matting it with Real Red cardstock.  Next I used two different patterns of DSP from the Flashback Designer Series Paper for some fun patterns.  For the greeting I used the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set and stamped in in Real Red ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the Circle Collection Framelits.  It’s matted with a piece of Real Red cardstock that had been cut out with the Starburst Framelit Collection.  The final touch was to add some Silver Baker’s Twine that I tied into a bow (I used two pieces for a doubly fancy bow, haha!)

This card is so bright and cheery it really helps on these cold fall days when I just want to snuggle under the blankets.  I hope you’re still playing along with this challenge, if you are you should have quite the collection of cards to show your appreciation.
