give thanks.


This is post 2 of 2...click HERE for my Your Next Stamp Fun Friday Challenge


If you know me, you know that I love a good challenge.  I don't know what I would do without all the various challenge blogs out there.  It's definitely overwhelming trying to keep up with everything.  Personally, I think challenges should all for for 2 weeks.

Anywho's this card is based on a couple challenges.  Hopefully you can spot the one right away.

cardstock:  pti, paper accents/vellum  stamps:  precious remembrance/fall colors, reverse confetti/forever fall  ink:  fresh ink/charcoal, gold embossing powder, your next stamp/gold nugget gum drops

If you've been following me for awhile, you know how much I love fall inspired cards.  So I was thrilled to have won the Precious Remembrance Fall Colors set.  Even though the images are fine detailed, I love how those leaves look embossed in gold.


The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Forever Fall set.  I stamped it in Fresh Ink Charcoal.  I thought gold would have been too much and I'm loving the Charcoal.

So, Vicki's card over on Muse inspired me:


My fall inspired card is ala



I'm also linking up over at Virginia's View Challenge



Yay for Friday's!  What on your schedule for today?

Beautiful card...and I agree: two week challenges helps creativity bloom. I need all the 'time' I can get (says she, who often gets her card in at the last moment).
