Thankful



It's fun to be in my craft room and doing challenges again.  I made two cards to show you today using the same sketch from Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge.




The first card is monochromatic with neutral shades of brown.

 
I just love the ribbon detail on this card and the sparkle from the glimmer paper.


I LOVE the Thanks is for giving sentiment from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set so I used it on the inside with a scrap of Mocha Morning DSP as a background.



On the second card I colored in the image and added a pop of color with some DSP. 


I also added some pearls to the wreath on the second card.  The piggyback challenge was to add a little "red". I did that by coloring in the berries.  There is also a tiny bit of red in one of the banners. 


The sentiment from Seasonal Sayings on the inside was matted with the same DSP.



I think this sketch work VERY well with the Full of Blessings stamp set.  The Festival of Prints paper stack works well too.  It's not just for Christmas cards. 


Creative Blessings,
Heather North
