I want to wish all those who take a peak at my blog a wonderfully warm and
I hope each and every one of you have a delightful day, enjoying good food and pleasing company!
My card was inspired by one originally designed by Misty Bradley over a year ago, and I thank her for that inspiration. As you may know by now, I really like square cards, so my card had to be square, and I decided it needed a few more color layers. I veined my leaves by folding at just the right angles and sponging these folds with Colorbox's Chestnut Roan to simulate the dinner-plate-sized maple leaves that fall in our front and back yards every year. I also tweaked the papers used, adjusted the layout a bit, and added embellishments. I just love the little wooden button and twine and decided it was just the right finishing touch. I think my card turned out to be really warm, thankful, and encouraging, and I hope you enjoy it on this special Thanksgiving Day!
