Thankfulness

I talked to my sister today.  She is preparing for surgery in a few weeks since she found out she has cancer.  I know it is very hard for her but she can still crack a few jokes about events in her life.  It made me think how much I have to be thankful for.  I decided to create a card that could be a Fall/Thanksgiving theme but still be bright and cheery.


I used a stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle that has Fall looking flowers but also beautiful butterflies.  I stamped it in brown and colored it with Tombow markers in bright Fall colors.  I cut it out along the edges and then layered it four times to add more color.  This grouping was then layered onto a a brown that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I sanded the embossed wording to bring out the yellow core color.  This was layered onto a dark brown card.

This was a great card for the Flutter By Wednesday Blog Challenge - use a butterfly, fairy, or angel on your project.
