MTSC87.....Thankful Thoughts of You




TGIF Peeps!

Today's card share is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

You know one of the nice things about some of the old in colors returning as new core colors, as is River Rock, is that I still have a stash of DS paper that matches it! This DS paper is from an old retired pack called, Apple Cider, I think.

The base of the card is a 5 inch square of river rock. The next layer is another piece of river rock that I used my new EF folder on, it is a larger folder so it accommodates larger pieces of paper. This one is called Polka Dots. I used Dusty Durango to mat the DS paper and I used cajun craze to sponge the edges and to stamp the leaves. Nice how all these rusty shades blend together so well. The leaves come from the Autumn Splendor stamp set and the sentiment is from the "Grateful Greetings" Stamp set. I added a button and some river rock ribbon, both retired.

Well, that is all from me today, I thank you so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
