I Am So Thankful

It is Shirley posting today. Here is the card I made for the Challenge #111 - Thankful.

When I was thinking about this challenge and what I was going to make, I was thinking about all the things I am thankful for. I had a very long list of things.

I started my card with a brown card base, added pumpkin card stock, and a layer of dotted designer paper.

Next I used my Spellbinders Oval Regalia die, with Ivory card stock. I have had this die for a while, and I finally remembered to use it. It looks even prettier than I had imagined. I attached it to the designer paper using Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

I used my Impression Obsession Classic Truck die with a piece of brown paper from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper pad. I placed the die cut on my oval, and made a few marks with a pencil so I knew where it would be located. I then stamped some pumpkins, and colored them with markers. You could add die cut pumpkins.

Next I sponged some blue clouds, and sponged green for the grass. I stamped some blades of grass in a darker green . I sponged brown ink around the edges of the truck. The hub caps were made with silver paper, but I was wearing a red shirt when I took the picture, so one of them looks red. I popped the truck up on the oval using Joy Small Foam Pads

I stamped Thankful, with the Sweet N' Sassy stamp set Keep In Touch.

I added the orange flower and put a Silver Rhinestone in the center for the finishing touch.

Gorgeous die to create the scene for your "thankful" truck full of blessings - the colors are perfect - the sky is beautiful and I love the load of pumpkins in the back of your truck!
