I decided to do a Thanksgiving card for the Crazy for Challenges today. I have started a thanks one but probably won't finish today as after being sick all week the mundane things are piled up. Imagine that not one good fairy came to my house in the night to help me out. LOL I chose to start with a light brown base card and then added a piece of soft orange( I know it looks gold) that had sprinkles of small little leaves on it. I love this particular swirl texture and highlited it with a litte lt brown and sewed it on with brown. The dk brown strip is punched with the morrocan. I used the inverted circle nestie to cut out the rusty color and then faux sewed around it. The print is from a psx stamp that my friend Martha let me use and I just put a little color on it with chalk and cut out and mounted. I layered the sentiment and then punched holes on each end and inserted the ribbon. It is a wonderful shimmery rust color. Although the colors look gold they really are much more rust color in person. Have a happy weekend. Its an absolutely glorious day here the temp is only 90 and a tiny breeze. The fall is such a wonderful reprieve after a hot summer!

  4. Wonderful card Davi...as usual! I love the fall colors and the cream texture gives contrast to the negative space and the Morroccan lace punch in brown. Great job.
