Thanks to the SUO Challenge team for choosing this as Top 3 Winner!!
I mentioned yesterday how much I have to be thankful for and I continued on my thank you card trend today. While I was at Regionals, my fabulous upline gave me some fun goodies to play with so I “had” to use them today. Brandi knows that I can’t resist a pretty ribbon and she gave me a whole pack of samples to use (expect to keep seeing them). One was the beautiful Victoria Crochet Trim. How did I not already have this?? Rest assured, it has been ordered now! She also included some Antique Brads which are particularly great with the Crochet Trim. Of course I used the Day of Gratitude set again. Here is the result:
The sketch comes from Stacey Schafer who is a guest designer at 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I used her bonus sketch. This card also meets the requirement for the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #3 to use products from the Holiday Mini. Finally, it is another card for Shelli’s October Challenge .
The leaves are stamped using a technique taught last weekend by the very talented Ilina Crouse from My Creations. You ink up the image and then sponge another color on the edges using a sponge dauber. Love the look! I going to be playing with variations of color and this technique for a while.
Hope your week is going well. I’m going to be working on more fun stuff for my hostess clubs that meet next week so expect to see those soon.

Oh what a pretty bow that trim makes–love how it’s peeking out on your focal image layer too.

Great card. Love the bow! I struggle to use that ribbon but you nailed it! And you need to stop with this set-I’m losing my resistance!! 🙂
A beautiful card. Great idea to use the lace as trim!
