PP417 Give Thanks

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the sweet and talented Claire is our hostess with a theme challenge: Give Thanks.

In addition to the theme, I was inspired by the beautiful challenge badge, with its neutral hues and subtle yellow flowers. I did some layered stamping on my leaves, also in neutral hues, and added some yellow berries. This was a super simple card, fun to make, and I really like the colors. 

I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is Anything Goes. 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Beautiful Day, Peony Bouquet, Beautiful Lady (Altenew)
Card Stock: Ivory, Black, Fog (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Words of Love (Carta Bella)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Evening Gray, Warm Sunshine (Altenew)
Tools: Big Shot, Beautiful Day Dies, Peony Bouquet Dies (Altenew)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!

This is lovely Sandy - the muted tones and greys add a subtle elegance to your card and the pop of yellow makes you sit up and take notice. So pretty!

Sandy, I love the focus on the leaves and the soft hues are stunning. I so rarely make neutral cards, but looking at this gorgeous card has inspired me to try some neutral cards this weekend. I agree with Joanne, the yellow does pop and make you sit up and take notice!
