Stampin'Sisters in Christ Challenge #14

This card is for Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. Helen chose Galations 6:9 as the scripture. It is a great scripture to certainly challenge us to keep on keepin on for the prize that lays befores us! Most appropriate reminder especially for me as it has been a trying week. Her challenge was to make a Thanksgiving card to celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving. Have any of you read the proclamation that Abraham Lincoln wrote to begin Thanksgiving? Wow, the president proclaiming that we are straying from God and need to remember where all we have comes from. It's quite moving. Anyone interested I would email you a copy. I do not have any actual thanksgiving stamps so I chose to use leaves that I embossed with black embossing powder and then colored with alcohol inks. I matted the orange on a grey that I punched corners with a marvy punch. I sewed it on with black and then stamped flourishes and went over them with black stickles for some sparkle. I put the sentiment on the purple and embossed it with the dotted swiss folder. Pop dotted it up for dimensionand added the little flower. I am so thankful First for a Savior and then for my family, friends & brothers and sisters in Christ. HAPPY THANKSGIVING
