So Grateful.....

Hello everyone: There is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, this time we want you to create Thanksgiving or Thank You cards, with the start of the Holiday season just around the corner, this is your chance to add to your Thanksgiving card stash.
Here is the card I made that I hope will inspire you to join my teammates and me in the gallery.

This image is from my stash of Flourishes stamp sets, this one is called "A Season of Thanks", which came out back in 2011. All the images are so beautiful and perfect for the Season.
I stamped this one onto a die cut panel of water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter, the pattern paper is from my treasured stash of Lili of the Valley, love it so much and it's sadly discontinued, 😞
The little sentiment is from my little box of sentiments that I save when I change my mind, it came out handy for this card.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, sometimes I get sweet compliments about my "second" card but it's only the inside. I started finishing the inside of my cards at the beginning of this year, this way, all my cards are ready to mail 😉

The sentiment is from another Flourishes set called "Lots of Thoughts", I stamped it onto die cut panel of cream cardstock with SU Old Olive and More Mustard markers using my Postage Stamp die set, I sponged a bit of Baked Brown Sugar on the edges for some dimension.

So there you have it, hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog to get more inspiration from my teammate's creations and then come and play along. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Always Fun Challenges Challenge #26 "Dies or Punches"
Fairy Tale Challenge Challenge #177 "Decorations inside and out"
Dare 2B Artzy October Challenge "Fall Colors"
Stamping Sensations October "Autumn Glory"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Such a lovely card and I really like the way that you've coloured the corn. The image and background papers co-ordinate beautifully and the colours are just perfect for our Autumnal challenge. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x
