The Challenge 18-Give Thanks


The Challenge is back with a new sketch and color combination!  I used both the sketch and the colors for this seasonal design.

Give Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Waffle FlowerMy image panel uses stamps and dies from Waffle Flower.  The large round label image from the Holiday Labels-Give Thanks set was stamped in sparkly gold, then filled in with the "give thanks" sentiment using espresso ink.  I accented the text with a die cut acorn and a pair of leaves.

The finished panel is adhered to a red strip matted on gold paper.  I layered the strip on a piece of elegant dark brown damask patterned paper, then adhered the panel to an espresso card base.

  8. Hi Lori,

    Lovely card. The Red in the center "pops" out the main point - the sentiment and the acorn fits right in.

    Great inspiration.
