FMS #104 ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey peeps! Yes I've skipped Halloween and moved right into Thanksgiving LOL!! I was itching to use my PTI Polka Dot Parade #6 stamps and dies and thought they would work perfectly for the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Sigh...I just love this card! When leafing through my papers, looking for something fall, I came across a portion of a Bo Bunny 12x12 I've had for a long time. The colors on the trees are so pretty. To let my pretty paper show through, I cut a vellum panel and dry embossed it. I used DeNami rhinestones to hold it in place on the left side. Then I layered the Pink Paislee banner on. I added a snippet of a paper doily to the bottom of it ~ LOVE!! And then came my ever so sweet tree. A combo of stamped and die cut leaves topped off with a few more rhinestones. I swoon over the font on this Impress stamp every time I use it!!

Have a delightful day friends! I'm go out and about today to find some fall prettiness for the front porch! Can't decide what color mums to get this year...soooo maaaany choices!!! ~Lisa
