A Glittery Happy Thanksgiving

Welcome! Have you gotten into the feeling of Fall yet? I certainly have! The cooler temperatures, the leaves changing color and pumpkins everywhere...
How could you help but know Autumn's blessings for us all? It was this feeling of changing seasons and the Fall beauty all around that inspired the card I have to share with you today!

I started with a Kraft card base and then stamped a background of acorns, leaves, corn and trees. I ran the card through the Cuttlebug with the Forest Branches folder. I also used Kraft stock for the sentiment image. I stamped it with SU craft ink and clear embossed it. Then it was cut out with Nesties. I stamped an acorn "frame" around the image. Next I colored with Prismas. Then the real fun began! I added a wide green satin ribbon across the bottom and proceeded to play with the glitter! I stopped myself just in time as I outlined the inner and outer frames. The final touches are glitter leaf brads and a gold/black button. Whatta you think? Too much?
Is there ever too much?!?

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Hope you had a little fun looking around and maybe even got a little inspiration! It is always such a joy to have you visit! Get out and enjoy the beauty when you can! Winter could be here before we even get the leaves raked!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
