Give Thanks card for PPCC blog DT card for no 434 challenge

Thanks go to A Day For Daisies for this sweet autumn image! During the past two years I've enjoyed seeing the products created by ADFD. They have a recognizable line stroke that I think is delicate and whimsical. My heart has broken this past week to hear through Facebook groups and blog comments that ADFD is closing their shop. So again I give thanks and appreciation to ADFD!

Another sponsor at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges blog this week is Di's Digi Stamps. They are another company with adorable images!

With this scattered leaves scene, I kept the sentiment simple "Give Thanks". I believe this is my first 2019 Thanksgiving card!

The orange and green glitter damask cardstock is from Recollections/Michaels. This was my first cut into this gorgeous paper! I've been holding onto it for about 16 months!!! It is so beautiful!

Overall dimensions: 5" deep x 7" wide; it is very difficult to see from the scanning but I added light blue swirls to show wind motion.

There's been a long delay today in the PPCC new post not being revealed yet, so I will edit it in when it becomes available. I'm checking at least every hour. UPDATE: released on 6/13/19

With the glitter cardstock's business in texture and patterns, I decided to keep the embellishments simple and limited to gold alpha stickers and yellow/gold bling mesh wrap style trim.

I haven't kept track of my total papers used since January 1st, however I appreciate this group's efforts to use interesting themes, products, and/or sketches to motivate me to use up old inventory. As mentioned earlier in the post, I've hoarded this amazing glitter damask textural overlay of stacker ruler images patterned cardstock for at least 16 months. I hated to cut into the 12" square CS but I need to share its beauty with someone else--someone special.

this is a great place to share with other paper-crafters what I've been creating

  1. What a sweet card Becca - I too was sad when I heard ADFD was closing.

    1. Thanks Maxine for being a very supportive blog follower!

  2. Beautiful card! I didn't know they were closing!

    1. Diane, thanks for checking on my project! And I was shocked to read that they were closing their shop. I've read that they are going to honor their sponsorships for the rest of the year, so I hope that's true. I really like their style.

  3. Gorgeous card Becca.
