Shopping Our Stash- #77 "Thank You"

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching, this week at SOS the challenge is simply to make a Thanksgiving card OR a Thank You card. I have several Thanksgiving cards made already so I decided to go with the 2nd option. YOU can make either one (or both!) for this challenge (#77) at Shopping Our Stash.

The flower on my card was sort of an experiment...I saw one like it on a blog I often visit because I absolutely love her creations! Her name is Julie and she is uber-talented; she's from London, England, and I just love her style! The flower is made from Nestie circle die cuts and the button in the center is really old: its been in an old button tin that moved with me from our first house at least 16 years ago. The aqua paper is from one of the packages of scraps you can buy at Hobby Lobby (like I needed more scraps!). The embossing folder is called "Flourish Dots" from Sizzix; the Thank You stamp is from Stampcraft; the die cut leaves are Spellbinders "Foliage"& the square is "Labels 15"; ribbon and gems are from my stash.
I hope you feel inspired to join in this challenge this week!
THANK YOU for stopping by!

Sandie, this is just WOW!!! Love the colors you used, embossing, flourishes, sentiment - and last but not least - that gorgeous flower! Cool idea on making that and the lovely button just tops it off. So very pretty.
I enjoyed being on the Shopping Our Stash DT with you but will never be far away!
