happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week! I’m happy to share that I’m guesting for Scrapping4funChallenges again! One of my projects was featured several weeks ago so I was asked to be a guest designer for Challenge #153 – Thanks / Thanksgiving / Gratitude. Bugaboo is sponsoring so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize!

I created a Thanksgiving card using Bugaboo’s Autumn Jar digital image which I colored with my Studio 71 alcohol markers. I just love this image, and as all Bugaboo images are, it was a pleasure to color!


I cut the image with a stitched mini scallop rectangle die, stamped a sentiment at the top, and layered it on foam and then the background created from three colors and patterns of paper from one of my favorite paper pads. Then I added several dark brown sequins.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the papers used on the front and then stamped a sentiment.


Here’s one more look… loving how this turned out! This month starts my absolute favorite time of year! ;)
