a season for love, A Season of Thanks . . .

Hi everyone thanks for stopping by.  If you are here from the Card ADay Blog you know we are celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving this week. 


I started by cutting the background paper a little bit smaller than my card.  I then embossed and inked the flower shape that I cut with my Cricut. The other shaped I just inked the edges.  The leaves are stamped onto white cardstock, cleared embossed, inked then cut out.  I have layered them with pop up dots between the layers.  I tied a bow and wrapped a piece of embroidery thread around the center of the bow before attaching it to the top of the leaves.

For the inside I stamped my sentiment "a season for love, A Season of Thanks, A Season For Love" then added a little border at the top of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
