Ever So Thankful

As we move into Autumn with the falling leaves and the harvest season, we have many reasons to be grateful to God.  Red Rubber Designs' theme this month is Thankful/Grateful.  I love, love, love this beautiful stamp called Ever So Thankful.  It is a collage stamp and seems so elegant. 

I've colored it with Copic markers, sponged Palette Cognac ink on the edges and used Crystal Effects on the word "thanks".  Recently I've discovered how great burlap is for adding texture on a card, and I thought it worked well with this autumn layout.  Also the dark brown card base is embossed with Spellbinders Flora embossing folder.

Blessings to you and your family this fall and season of thanks.

Lovely card, Paula-Kay. Looks so pretty to have the leaves in the foreground like that. The burlap looks amazing! Very rich colors, too. TFS
