This is so much fun! This is my first post as a design team member at Creative Card Crew. The new challenge theme is “Thankful”.
The base card was cut using the Cricut cartridge “Elegant Edges”.
The papers are from:
  • Graphic45 – Halloween in Wonderland collection
  • Core’dinations – Tim Holtz (for the green pear)
  • American crafts – Brown cardstock (autumn collection)
Edges were distressed using the Tim Holtz edge distresser and Colorbox ink (Chestnut roan). The pear was dry embossed and sanded.
The metal flowers are from Graphic45. I placed one small flower on top of a large and rolled their edges to add a little dimension to it.
I wrote “Thankful” with a black Micron pen. The letters were stretched out to fill the area.
The long strips of paper are rolled at the ends. Blue paper was accordion folded, distressed and glued underneath the vertical tear in the paper on the top.
The challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp – so hurry to the CCC blog and enter to win!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Dutch dare - give thanks
Fussy and fancy Friday - be thankful and sentiment
All sorts - anything but square
Graphic45 - Thank you card
