Give Thanks

I have a unique card to share with you today that was based on a picture I found on Pinterest.  Here is the inspiration photo.

And this is the card I made using that as inspiration.

I die cut the leaves from the PTI Autumn Acorns set and then stamped the image from the stamp set with Haystack Palette ink.  I then adhered just the centers of the die cuts with adhesive and curled up each edge.  I went with a Hawaiian Shores leaf focal point rather then the red because I really like the contrast it added, but there is a Scarlet Jewel leaf underneath.

The leaf that the sentiment was stamped on (LOVE, LOVE the fonts in this set so much!!) was also impressed with the woodgrain impression plate as was the back panel of the card that the leaves are attached to.

I stitched down the center of this leaf to give it some texture.

The card has a unique look to it I think and was very simple to put together!

And some really exciting news!! Lil' Inker Designs is getting ready to introduce some FUN new products! Join us the week of September 19 - 23 as the design team shows off these new products! Let me tell you, they are fun, fun!!

 We are headed to the Kansas State Fair this afternoon for fun with family and friends.  We usually only go once a year even though we are within 15 minutes of it.  Wouldn't you know that while we have been enjoying temps in the 70's and 80's that tomorrow it is suppose to be in the 90's (and then nice the rest of the week!)!  Of course!! It is either usually HOT or rainy on the day we go each year (which is usually dollar day!). 

Thank you for stopping by today!! Hope you enjoy your day!
