Grateful, Thankful, Blessed--Paper Players 320-SSC139

November 6, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!
The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week.  Her theme for the week is "THANKFUL"!  We all have so much to be thankful for.  In this lovely month of November, we reflect on this more.  We really need to count our blessings every day!  

It is also a new color palette at Sunday Stamps!  We hope you will join us and share your beautiful creations with these lovely colors.

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a retired fall DSP from Stampin' Up for my background.  I trimmed is with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from SugarPea Designs.  The Cajun Craze rectangle was trimmed with the same dies and backed with a piece of Crumb Cake.  I used an embossing folder on this piece.  The little fox and sentiment are from SugarPea Designs-Fall Fox.  I colored him and his piles of leaves with Copic Markers.  The circles were trimmed with the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Dies.  A few retired candy dots and Wink of Stella were added to complete my card.
