Autumn Blessings!

Hi there! I'm playing along with a couple of challenges today. Sort of a just for fun card you might say! I saw that The Paper Players had a blessings/thankful challenge. Personally, I'm thankful this election is behind us. I pray that with God's grace our country can come together to make America a better place. I've used this week's Retro Sketches challenge for my card design to create something playful and lighthearted.


What better place to begin than with some cute October Afternoon paper! I added a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 4 die cut to the card edge. A pair of MFT die cut leaves replaced the large flower in the sketch. One is cut from PTI's Canyon Clay felt, the other, OA paper. My sentiment (SSS) was stamped and die cut with a RC banner. Two PSX acorns replaced the small flower from the sketch. Finally I used a trio of DeNami Design buttons as accents. Wow, that's 8 companies represented on one card LOL!! I think that might just be a record!!


Thanks for popping in today, I appreciate it! ~Lisa
