Give Thanks...


This week's challenge has been posted over at Heart 2 Heart and I already have my entry completed...yeah me!  The challenge that was given this week was a sketch and this is my interpretation.

Since next weekend is the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada and Fall seems to be setting in very quickly that inspired my seasonally appropriate theme.  I used a real mish mash of supplies.  Some old...some really old!  I am gonna use it up I tell ya!  :)  I used the flourish paper from the now discontinued Perfect Day pack...love that pattern...for the background.  The vertical stripes were cut from the patterned stripe paper in the Grace pack but I used the reverse side which is neutral.  Love how that turned out.  I cut out the two shapes behind the harvest veggies from the Art Philosophy cart and really like how they accent the stamped image and all three layers are popped off of one another making it really stand out.   I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  Let me know what you think!





Supplies (all CTMH):

Paper:  Grace & Perfect Day paper packs (both now discontinued), Colonial white and Cocoa cardstock
Ribbon:  Cocoa Designer Ribbon Rounds (discontinued)
Stamps:  Give Thanks (discontinued) and Grateful Hearts
Inks:  Chocolate Distress Ink and Cocoa Exclusive Ink
Other:  CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
