A Note of Thanksgiving

This is a card I created for publication and they declined it. Sniff... Sniff... However now I can share with you, as I really like how the card turned out myself. This set is called A Season Of Thanks from Flourishes. I have stamped the image onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.

My image is colored using several copic collections:

I layered my image panel onto a Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass die using our Color Made Easy Rich Browns collection paper. The base panel is textured paper from our Color Made Easy Terra Cotta collection.

Cut out my frame using Spellbinders romantic rectangles, ran some orange mesh ribbon along the center. Then added my Color made Easy Rich Brown Argentina ribbon down the center and tied off the ribbon bow with some ivory jute and a rich brown button. Added my stamped panel and voila! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Did you see Annette Witherspoon has a Contenders blog hop just for these gorgeous cards that were not picked up for publication? Yours is a beauty. Love that orange.
