Giving Thanks with Gem

Hello my friends and Happy Sunday.  I hope you are all doing well wherever you are. Such sad news from around the world this weekend. I have a niece that had to go to Paris yesterday for work. Just praying that she has a safe journey and nothing more happens while she is there. Here in America we have so much to be grateful for, and I think that our theme is very timely given what time of the year it is. Only 11 more days until we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the USA. Our theme over at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes with Giving Thanks/Thanksgiving. Here is my card.

Materials Used:

  • Image - Gem by Beary Dust
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Curvy Verses
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up, Really Rust
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Apple Cider
  • Ink - Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories - Spellbinders Die; copper ribbon and bling twigs from my stash; Stampin Up Dimensionals

I hope you'll come join us and play along with our challenge.  Don't forget to stop over at One Stitch at a Time and see what the rest of the Design Team has to show you.  You could be the winner of this fabulous November Prize Pack from our awesome sponsor - Stitchy Stamps.
