30 Days of Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 27

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving Eve!  I guess I have to admit the holiday is officially here, even if I'm not ready.  I'm so looking forward to heading out this afternoon to visit friends (it's our tradition) and it's so fun to catch up and the kids have so much fun playing today.  Before we head out I wanted to share today's gratitude card, which is also a combo again, this time with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge.  I really liked all the geometric elements to this sketch and knew I had to play along.
The cardbase is Crumb Cake and I added a layer of Pool Party Core'dinations Cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder and lightly sanded.  Next I added a piece of Etcetera Designer Series Paper for the tag and an accent with an In Color Boutique Details element, in Pistachio Pudding with a small piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock punched out with the 1" Circle Punch

For the hexagon images I used the Six Sided Sampler stamp set and stamped the different images in Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, and Crisp Cantaloupe (anyone hungry yet?) ink and then punched them out with the matching Hexagon Punch.  I did use a dimensional to attach just the hexagon with the greeting on it so it really stands out.
Nice and easy peasy, hope you enjoy!  Well I better get going still have a few things to do before we head out.  Everyone who is traveling, please be safe and I hope everyone has a Happy and Restful Thanksgiving.
See you back here tomorrow!
