Thankful


I love this season of gratitude and the colors, sights, scents and mostly everything that goes along with it. When I saw the CAS Colors and Sketches Challenge #246, Concord & 9th's Layering Leaves dies came right to my mind. I smooshed 3 panels of watercolor paper with the three Color Throwdown #466 Distress Ink colors, sprayed them with Ranger Distress Antiqued Bronze Mica Spray Copper, and die cut them. I mounted the die cuts on Ranger Distress Woodgrain Cardstock, framed the panel with a snippet that had been cut from Avery Elle Scalloped Pierced Rectangle, and added a die cut sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Thanks and Giving Honey Cuts. I must say, I love the way it came out.   

I'm playing at:

Colors and the icing sprays of leaf-like decoration on the sides of the cake.
