In All Things Give Thanks

     Our challenge theme this week at The Kraft Journal is "Give Thanks".  You might recognize these pumpkins if you saw my "Dancing Bones" card a couple of weeks ago.  I just think they are so cute.  I've colored them with Copics, cut them out with a Nestie die, stamped around the edge of the image a little, and inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  The image is matted on Brown Kraft cardstock and the base of the card is made from a Kraft Brown Blank Notecard.  The green designer paper is matted on Buff Ivory cardstock and both the thin outer and center image panels are popped up on foam from the base of the card.  I used some 7 Gypsies Savannah seam binding for the diagonal ribbon and bow and added a few pearls to the corners.
     Here's the inside of the card.

     We'd love to have you play along this week.  Just get your projects linked up by 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday for your chance to win a Top Three spot, Feature Me Friday, and go in the drawing for our monthly $15.00 voucher from Kraft Outlet.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

2 Sisters--ribbon
Mark's Finest Paper--fall or winter theme
The Outlawz Copic Challenge--thanks or thanksgiving

     Happy Monday!

This is just gorgeous, Tracy! Look at all those luscious layers! LOVE that sweet pumpkin image and the die cuts. Your coloring is just amazing and I adore the extra stamping around the edges of the die cut. Love that ribbon on the diagonal, too. :)

Very pretty. Great blog. I'll be checking back. Thanks for joining Speedy the Cats Friends.


Hi Tracy:
I just love your sideways ribbon. I have not seen that before and it is SO effective. Your design of the elements for where you put the pungkins is just perfect for your die cut and the colors, oh you have such a knack for that! Such a clean and classy card.


Oh tracy, when I closed this box, I just noticed the scrollidoos around your image. Bella!

Love what you've done here, Tracy! The pumpkins are perfect, of course. But I really love the inside of your card the most. A perfect quote for giving thanks!
