ASM - Holiday .....

.....  Morning everyone!  I am very, very late with my DT card for Addicted to Stamps and More!  My excuse is that I've been busy having a fun time with my son, Ben, and his girlfriend, Sophie while they vacation with us here in the States. However, I did manage to get an hour in my craft room yesterday afternoon and have made a card for this week's challenge.  Our challenge this week is HOLIDAY, and I've made a clean, simple card for Thanksgiving:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Six Sayings, Lighthearted Leaves
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Cucumber Crush; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


One of the advantages of being late with my project is that I'm playing along with some of my favourite challenges.  I've used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#210 for the layout (although I've turned it to make a landscape card).  The colours are from Colour Me Card Challenge - CMCC#95 - just love them.

I stamped this gorgeous leaf three times on scrap card, coloured them all with Copic markers and used a square punch to cut out different areas.  I added sparkle to all the leaves with my clear Wink of Stella brush.  I adhered the panels flat to the card.  I finished the front with a this fabulous sentiment - love that script.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel added another leaf, coloured with slightly lighter tones, and a simple greeting.

I have to apologise to my team mates for not getting my card ready in time.  That's all for now!  See you soon.
