Give Thanks For All Things--FMS256-Addicted to Stamps #213 and More-The Heart Desires #4

September 28, 2016

I have been waiting for the perfect sketch for this new stamp set.  The Freshly Made Sketches team posted a new challenge and it was just what I was looking for. 

I am also linking my card to the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge.  They are celebrating "HOLIDAYS."  My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving!  It is a day of family, food and    
football. (for some)  LOL!  

I also found a new challenge to me The Heart Desires.  It has a variety of way to play along.  There is a sunflower in my cornucopia and the colors are all used in my coloring. 

My card is created on Crumb Cake card stock.  The top layer is from my paper stash.  I know this is a retired SU paper.  I cut it using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners. The main image is from the Stamping Bella-Casey Has A Cornucopia.  I must admit, this took a LONGGGG time to color.  I love the results, but I don't think I will be making many cards with her.  LOL!  I used Copic markers and added Wink of Stella to give her some shine.  The sentiment is stamped in Versa Fine Cocoa ink.  Enamel dots and linen thread were added to complete my card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
