Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

For all my friends in Canada I created a card which I thought might let you know that I count you as one of my greatest blessings too! Happy Thanksgiving Day Canadian style!


I used pattern paper from Gina K. Designs and also a sentiment from her line of stamps. The oval dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs as are the larger rectangle dies and the leaves. Some of the leaves were cut from white card stock to which I had added various shades of Fall colors. And, the rest were cut from plain card stock. After layering everything together I finished the card off with a black bow.
I forgot to add I put some little orange and yellow gems on the oval layer with the sentiment. Not sure where they came from or who made them but they seemed perfect to me.

Supplies are listed below if you want to check into them.

Pattern paper:
Gina K. Designs Grateful Heart pack

Sentiment:

I am entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge for this week which is to use black and orange.

I hope my Canadian and friends all over the world are having a wonderful day. Thanks for being there for me.

God bless,
Verna
