Grateful...for all of my blog readers




Today's card was inspired by Beate's Inspiration Challenge, a Martha Stewart photo. I kept the card extremely simple and used only scraps to create it. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, so I thought I would send some grateful energy out your way! I'm grateful for each of my blog readers and all of the comments and encouraging words you send. Thank you. Please come by tomorrow because I plan to take some Thanksgiving table setting photos (with food and all)! I hope I can get my paper art table settings finished!

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving. Be safe.

Instructions
  1. Make card base by trimming cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5" then score at 5.5" and set aside.
  2. Trim squares out of vanilla and brown cardstocks, making brown cardstock slightly larger.
  3. Trim green cardstock into a rectangle to fit slightly outside of the brown square.
  4. Stamp leaves on vanilla cardstock.
  5. Adhere squares together.
  6. Tie ribbon around olive cardstock in a bow.
  7. Adhere entire focal point off of card base using dimensionals.
  8. Stamp sentiment on card base.
