Giving Thanks






AAA Cards Challenge is a new one for me. Their THANKSgiving game is about giving thanks. Paper Players Challenge #222 is "Clean and Simple Thank You".  I wanted to make a card to thank my niece for hosting Thanksgiving this year. When I saw the inspiration photo for the AAA Cards challenge, I immediately thought of PTI's Table Service stamps and dies, and I wanted to do a place setting on burlap.  This is what I came up with for these two challenges.  I really love that silverware tucked in the napkin. I will be making the turkey, the brie tartlets and the place cards this year.  I can smell those heavenly smells already.  Thanks for coming by today.

Supplies:
Stamps~PTI Nuts To You, Table Service
Accessories~PTI Leaf Prints and Table Service Dies, Woodgrain IP, Burlap, Twine, Button, Lil' Inkers stitched Sentiment Flag Die
Paper~PTI Terracotta Tile, Rustic Cream, SU Brushed Silver, Authentique Thankful DP
Ink~Versafine Vintage Sepia, PTI Vintage Touch Tea Die, Scarlet Jewell, Classic Kraft

Fun design! I really like how your focal image resembles a placemat with a plate and silverware. Such a cute idea. So glad you shared your creation at The Paper Players.

Ooh, this card looks amazing! Love the texture, from the base card all the way through to the burlap. Have to say, your thanksgiving menu sounds delicious too! Too bad we don't celebrate thanksgiving where I'm from (wink!)
