Giving Thanks (again)

This week I am making loaves of banana bread to hand out to friends and  coworkers and I am also including cards for some of the recipients. This particular card is going to a friend of ours that serves on city council with my husband and also teaches at my kids school. She is such a wonderful person and we are very thankful to have her and her family in our lives, and so the card and bread are just a little gift to say we're thankful for her friendship!

The Paper Players sketch was the perfect starting point for my card. Because I used a larger image from MFT I just did the tag shape and then stamped the sentiment and created a banner for that coming off to the right. The patterned paper is from SEI and was sitting in a stash I've had for a few years. To create the tag I used the MFT Tag, You're It and then used the Snow Drifts Cover Up die to create strips across the tag. I then popped up my PI girl with dimensionals on the tag, and adhered the tag to the card with dimensionals also.
