22nd November 2011

Well, it has been a few days since I posted or added anything for you to look at. Having entered my first challenge I thought that it was time for my second one , for this I have of course chosen my friend Cynthia's  as it was at her insistence that I started my blog (thank you Cynthia, I am enjoying it much more that I thought that I would)
This months topic is "Thanksgiving"

I have chosen a plain brown card as background. The leaf edge mat has been cut on the Silhouette, the centre of it has been covered in a bronze oil on water type card from my stash. The leaves were stamped using stamps from a Creative Expression set, they were embossed in gold and coloured with Promarkers. The leaves were then curled and mounted with silicone glue. The sentiment which doesn't show up very clearly says "One touch of nature makes the whole world kin", this was embossed with gold and mounted onto gold miri card. The "Thanksgiving " sentiment was cut using the Silhouette and gold embossed. The ribbon was from my stash.
