Give Thanks

Today's share is a card I made for a good friend.
I also created it as a sample for the Thanks challenge
There is still time to enter and prizes can be won :)

For some reason I struggle with cards. Working on ATCs and inches NO PROBLEM, pull out a card base and I am a deer in headlights.

No joke it took me 3 whole days just to make this. I stared and stared until I could (in the immortal words of Tim Gunn) 
Make It Work

The base was created with my Gelli plate, some old (and I mean OLD) acrylic paint 
and some stencils.
A piece of lace, Prima flowers and some pearls were added over the print.
The leaves were cut by hand from a scrap of patterned paper and the title was stamped, torn out and inked before being added.

Just a simple card to convey the sentiment of this upcoming Thanksgiving.
For all we have
Give Thanks

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

I love the contrast of the kraft colored sentiment and the softness of the flowers and pink! :)
