Great Impressions: Monthly Challenge: Thankful Thoughts

Hi, friends!  It's time for another monthly challenge over on the Great Impressions blog!  Our theme this month is THANKFUL THOUGHTS.  Anything that expresses gratitude or thanks is fine to link up.  Come and see what I made!

I started this card by stamping the darling image, H259 Pumpkin Puppy, and the sentiment, D451 Gratitude, onto a card base.  I then colored in this darling image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers using an autumnal palette.

I then added the main panel to a dark brown mat and added some faux stitching with a sparkly red gel pen.  I went for a criss cross stitch instead of a straight stitch to give the border some weight.

Lastly, I threw a few sequins to finish the card.  I love the gold with these fall colors and the shine is a perfect way to lighten this card up!  Voila!

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
