Give Thanks

I go back to night shift starting Monday but this morning I was up early and with the husband at work in Anchorage and 2 kids sleeping and 2 kids gone I had some quiet time to get a card done.

I received my big SU preorder from the Christmas catalog the other day so I decided to use one of the new sets to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I grabbed Thankful Forest Friends, I really like the images in this set, especially the bear. I didn't break the bear out today though, I used one of the sentiments instead.

I used markers to color the sentiment and I stamped it on a piece of Whisper White. It's offset by a piece of Hello Honey and underneath the panels I put a strip of retired SU Burlap ribbon. The card base is Hello Honey and I layered a panel of Tangelo Twist on it. The sequins are non-SU but they are a Mossy Green that matched my colors so I used them. 

A nice simple fall card!

Paper: Hello Honey, Whisper White, Hello Honey DSP, Tangelo Twist DSP
