Sending You Thanksgiving Blessings...

Edit: This card won Honorable Mention at the JustRite Friday Challenge 039.

Good Morning! It's a gloomy day here today, so I thought I'd warm it up a bit with this Thanksgiving card I made for my 91 year old grandfather. His birthday is only two weeks before Thanksgiving and he likes to sit his cards and gifts out in his apartment (which he calls his "Cozy Corner") to look at throughout the day. I hope this one will make him happy when he looks at it!

I used the JustRite Friday Challenge 039 theme of Give Thanks and went for a faux quilt or patchwork for this card. The papers are all from that K & Co. paper pad you've seen quite a bit lately. I used rubon stitches in two different patterns and topped it off with a rich brown sheer bow and a few gold pearls.

Now let's talk about the stamps! I used the JustRite Autumn Blessings set for the image of the Indian Corn and colored it with copics. This wasn't a favorite image of mine at first, but after I started coloring it, it came to life and I love it! Then I stamped the sentiment and border from the Give Thanks Nested Frames set and colored in the leaves and acorns with copics in various Fall colors. I can't tell you enough how much I really like these nested borders and sentiments sets. They are so versatile! The possibilities really are endless.
