Happy Thanksgiving--The Challenge #49

November 2, 2015

It's Monday and time for a new challenge at  The Challenge.  We have a fabulous sketch for you to use.  We can't wait to see what you create!  

1. Use the challenge to create a card or paper project.
2. Please add the challenge photo to your post (copy and paste).
3. Have fun and comment on the submissions of others.
4. Anything that is offensive to myself or to my viewers will be removed.
5. Have fun.

I absolutely love this sketch and will be using it for future cards.  It has endless possibilities.  I wanted to add to my Thanksgiving card stash.  I started my card with a Very Vanilla base.  I used a fabulous Fall paper pack by Carta Bella for all the patterned papers.  It is called "Fall Blessings".  SugarPea Designs-Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies were used to cut all the rectangles.  I also used the SugarPea Designs-Zig Zag Stitched Circle Dies for the circles.  I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla using Vintage Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Tags 4 You.  The Label Bracket punch was used to cut it out.

Three small banners were cut and placed under the green rectangle.  Rust colored enamel dots were added for fun.  Such a quick and easy card to put together.
