Thankful for You

I'll be getting my Thanksgiving cards addressed this weekend, including this one.  It was inspired by Stephanie's MFT video Thankful for You, which uses a stamp set I love but seldom use--MFT Peaceful Wildflowers.  
I sponged an ivory panel with Distress Inks vintage photo, dried marigold, wild honey & scattered straw.  Then I die cut the panel with the largest Stitched Oval Scallop Frames.  The wildflowers & sentiment from MFT Thankful Leaves were all put in my Mini MISTI & stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia onto the center piece of the die cut.  I spritzed it with gold Perfect Pearls mist--so beautiful in person.
The frame piece is layered 4 high & attached in place. Finished off with sequins in shades of brown & gold--thank you, Betty. I'm entering the MFT Spread Your Thankfulness challenge. I am truly blessed with a wonderfully supportive & faithful group of blog friends who connect with me on a personal level--not just about crafting.  This card is going to one of them. I'm also entering Dies R Us, Double D, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, Retro Rubber (stamps over 2 yrs old), SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  8. Beautiful card Greta. Have been looking just not commenting. I was restricted to the iPad and for some reason the ipad and feedly were not connecting properly so I could look but not comment. Finally the problem is fixed and I am back.

  18. Gorgeous card, I love the earth tones. Thanks for all your visits to my blog, much appreciated. I made an error, I used clear goosebumps but when used on white paper, of course it will look white :) They are fun to use, I tend to forget that I have a bottle of the 'stuff'. Take good care, Shirleyxx

  29. Love your delightful card Greta.
    It is superbly constructed and that effect is simply magical.
    I also liked the fact you've kept a rather monochromatic palette.
    Bravo!
