Grateful

I've been wanting to try My Favorite Things sketch challenges, but haven't gotten a card done until tonight.  I was really motivated this week because my new order arrived in just 3 days (amazing customer service!) with the Thankful Leaves stamp set & dies.  I die cut the leaves in MFT Jellybean Green felt & then stamped them using Distress Ink peeled paint--it's very subtle, so doesn't show very well in the picture.  The embossing folder is Tim Holtz & the printed paper is MME Stella & Rose.  The Nestie is Labels Two & is used for the focal piece & a small one is trimmed for the sentiment.  I got brave & cut the sentiment so I could use just the word "grateful" without having to mask it.  The buttons are threaded with MFT hemp, also part of my new stuff.  I sponged the tan edges with Distress Ink old paper to soften them a little.  Glad to have another Thanksgiving card ready!  

Miserably cool & wet here, but really can't complain after our long, warm summer.  Enjoy your week & thank you for visiting my blog.
