Give Thanks!

I played for a few minutes with a color challenge on Paper Wings (orange, brown, kraft, and green) and a sketch challenge from Paper Crafts Planet and this is the result.

I just got the set called Give Thanks as I have no autumn/Thanksgiving type stamps. I used orange DCWV cardstock, kraft cardstock (temp. unavailable), and some green texture & brown cardstocks from my scrap pile. I stamped the image and text with Noir PH ink. The image is colored with my Watercolor Crayons and the Niji water brush. I used my Mega Scallop Oval punch for the image and swiped Burnt Umber PH ink on the edges. I like this effect. The larger oval was made with my retired Coluzzle oval template (which I also used for the text oval). I colored my white scrappers floss with Jardin Moss, Orangerie, and Burnt Umber inks and attached them with a brown brad. Both ovals are raised up with Pop Dots.

I want to give thanks to my Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ the Son for my salvation, my husband who supports this rubber addiction, and family. What do you want to give thanks for?

Side note: No one guessed what I "tool" I used on my Whitewashed cards so I'll give the answer. It was a Sanding Block!! Now, wasn't that just too easy??? So the first person to comment on this post will receive the card. Please include your email addy as my comment notification doesn't give it to me.
