Thankful For You The Paper Players Challenge PP665

 Nov. 6, 2023

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  

The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous Theme Challenge for all of us!   The theme is "Let's Give Thanks"!  Oh, there are so many possibilities with this one.  

My card was created on a white card base.  I added a layer of Copper Clay card stock for my background.  I used a Kraft paper for the next layer and embossed the panel with a plaid embossing folder.  I cut a circle on this layer with a circle die and added a piece of SU All About Autumn DSP.  I used the left over scraps of this piece and SU Oxidized Copper paper to cut the leaves and the veins. I used the SU Autumn Leaves Dies to cut all the pieces.  I also added a piece of twine behind the leaves for texture.  I loved how the leaves turned out.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by SugarPea Designs that is retired called Bountiful Blessings .  I stamped in brown ink on the Kraft paper and added Copper Clay behind it.  I then added gold enamel dots to complete my card.
