Gratitude Changes Every Thing The Paper Players Challenge PP616

 Nov. 6, 2022

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.   I am the hostess this week and I have a very timely theme challenge for all of you!  "GIVE THANKS" is so appropriate for the season!  There are so many possibilities with this theme because we ALL have so  much to be thankful for!  We can't wait to see what you create!   

My card is created on a white base.  I covered the background in a checked patterned paper.  I added a piece of Very Vanilla (SU)  card stock and cut it using a Penny Black die--Antique Frame -and used the frame for the next layer.  I used 3 colors of distress ink on a piece of watercolored paper and blended all the colors together.  Then I cut all the leaves from the blended piece of paper.  The die is from SU and it is called gorgeous leaves.  I believe this set is retired, but I will keep it in my stash because the leaves are so beautiful and intricate.  The sentiment is stamped in dark brown using Honey Bee Stamps-Fall For You.  I cut it out with the matching die.  I added a few enamel dots to complete my card.
