Thanksgiving Card (B71B)

Hello, all!  I'm continuing to enjoy fall to its fullest, and I have a Thanksgiving card to share today.  The card is my entry for the Berry 71 Bleu October Challenge.  This challenge is to make a project that incorporates fall colors, and challenge hostess Marivic provided this wonderfully inspirational mood board.


What I like about this mood board is that it doesn't just feature a few autumn colors (i.e., the typical reds and golds); instead, it has a whole spectrum of fall colors.  I wanted to use that spectrum effect in my card, so I arranged some Doodlebug die cut flowers loosely in rainbow order.  Here's my card:

Supplies: cardstock base from Neenah Paper; burgundy woodgrain paper, tan scalloped border sticker, & flower/leaf die cuts from Doodlebug Design; sentiment stickers from Bella Blvd.

And now I am ready ahead of time with a Thanksgiving card!  It's nice to be ahead of the game for once.  :)

Now, I'm off to enjoy my weekend.  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
