Come Ye Thankful People

Just in the nick of time I'm posting my entry for the challenge at Impression Obsession.  I debated sending my sister home with a Thanksgiving card so I didn't have to mail it. Thinking about the joy of getting a card in the mailbox along with all the junk & bills made me change my mind.  I used this gorgeous IO leaf & lovely IO verse stamps. Delicata Golden Glitz looks like gold leafing & is so beautiful stamped on ivory.  The verse was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.  I cut the stamped pieces with my trimmer & a mat for the verse which is inked with the gold. The ivory edges are sponged with Distress Ink old paper--it totally changes the look.  I cut apart a wedding invitation knowing someday I'd have a use for this thick, textured, dark brown paper.

Trying to get the twine OK behind the verse took longer than everything else--LOL! Finished off with some brown gems. It's so fulfilling to have a card come together you really like & I think my family will, too. I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets PlaygroundWords 2 Scrap By & Time Out Challenges.
I'm so thankful for the kindness & support of you, my blogging friends.
