30 Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 15

Welcome to another Friday, we made it!  I was talking to Aidan yesterday about Thanksgiving and we realized we are now less than 2 weeks again, can't believe it.  For today's gratitude card I decided to play along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge.  This is such a soft, soothing combination which is a nice change.
The cardbase is Crumb Cake cardstock and then I added a layer of Whisper White that was stamped with the Creative Elements stamp and Soft Sky ink before matting is on a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.  Next I used the large flower image from the same stamp set and Crisp Cantaloupe ink to stamp the next layer that was matted with both Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride cardstock.  I added a piece of Soft Sky 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon and a knot in Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
For the greeting I decided to frame it with the ornamental piece from the Creative Elements stamp set, stamped it in Soft Sky ink and cut it out with Paper Snips.  Then I stamped the greeting from the Heard from the Heart Stamp set, stamped with Blushing Bride ink and punched it out with the Large Oval Punch.

This card is nice and pretty and really a change in pace from what I've been working on.  How are you doing with your gratitude card challenge?  Hope you're making progress on your cards, would love to see them.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
