Happy Monday, Friends! The other day I was packing up Halloween decorations and putting out some decorations for Thanksgiving. I once again felt like Thanksgiving is a forgotten holiday. The merchandise in the stores goes right from Halloween to Christmas. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love to cook and I love being with family and friends. In that spirit I was inspired to make a "gratitude" card.
I'm playing along with three challenges today: the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches, the "Thank Fall" theme challenge at The Card Concept, and the colors at Fab Friday.
I embossed the background and then splattered some ink on it using an Aqua Painter. The panel with the sentiment was distressed using a distressing tool, and the leaves were cut out by hand.
