Blessed



I'm still finishing up cards for Thanksgiving & didn't want to miss the PTI MIM challenge.  This week's video moved the Ombre Builders stamp set up on my wishlist.  I don't really have anything like that, but then I realized my favorite Turning a New Leaf might work & I love how it turned out. The PTI inks are Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Canyon Clay, Simply Chartreuse & Ripe Avocado. I'm already glad I broke my no spending rule & got the Counting My Blessings dies & stamp set.  I clear embossed the brown cardstock used for "blessed" to give a bit of shine since I decided not to use any glitter.  The brown ink for the sentiment & splotches is Distress Ink gathered twigs. Hoping I can get more of this pretty green twine at the little boutique downtown--should have bought more than 1 yard--LOL!  
I'm entering at ColourQ--will let them decide if I'm close enough to the colors. This also fits the Gratitude & Kindness challenge at Words 2 Scrap By.  I used several scraps so get to enter at Pixies Snippets Playground--gorgeous prize this week!  I'm also going to enter at Inkspirational with my shiny diecut word. Now I better get my cards signed & addressed so they aren't late.  Wishing you all a wonderful week.
