The Card Concept #62 - Thanksgiving

 This week, at The Card Concept, the theme is 'Thanksgiving'. Have a look at the gorgeous Autumn colours in the inspiration image........................so inspiring!!

When you read this post I will be winging my way to Fiji for a holiday. Looking forward to going back to the place I was born. It's so beautiful.

For this card I was inspired to go Shabby again. The Autumn leaves are dies from Lawn Fawn. As I don't have a stamp, I inked the die with black Versafine before I die cut the leaves and it worked just fine. I then water coloured the leaves with Distress inks.

Leaves lawn fawn dies
Spellbinders scallop square
Hero ArtsSentiment.
Distress inks
Purchased sunflowers, twine, white stamens inked with black ink.
