A Time for being Thankful - BC74

For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

Lord of all, to Thee we raise,
This our hymn of grateful praise. - Folliot S. Pierpont


It's Friday and that means it's time for another Bloggers Challenge.  This week our theme was a card or project about (Giving Thanks).
With Thanksgiving just a week away what could be a better theme.

For my card this week I used the Kim Hughes set:  Let's Get Stuffed for my card.  I colored the Cornucopia with Prisma Colored Pencils blended with Gamsol. You can't see it but the fruit and vegetables were colored over with a Clear Spica Glitter pen for some shimmer.   It was stamped on Whisper White card stock with Palette Noir Black ink.  I layered this to a Circle of Always Artichoke cs and another of Ridinghood Red and added 3 mini red brads (Queen and Company).
My card base is Ridinghood Red layered with More Mustard, Always Artichoke.  I stamped the sentiment first and then embossed it using my Cuttlebug and the Pumpkins embossing folder.  Then I layered a strip of designer paper (Apple Harvest - Provo Craft) and a piece of More Mustard cs that I scalloped and pierced.  I also added a thin strip of the Ridinghood Red card stock and tied Artichoke Grosgrain ribbon around the layers and tied it in a knot.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
