Thankful For You

Hi there. Cardz 4 Galz had started a new challenge with a new theme. Caz has chosen the theme of ‘Autumn/Fall Leaves‘. Here is my card:

I wanted to make a card with this kind of sentiment on it for a good friend who has been absolutely invaluable to me over the past few weeks. I’ve needed someone to help with some things – and she has been right there. She has run me around and generally kept in touch when I needed a boost – I am so, so thankful for her. She’s an absolute gem.

I started by stamping the Concord & 9th turnabout onto a Kraft card stock, using four autumnal colours from Gina K. The turnabout jig is a must for me to be able to line things up – thanks to the Concord & 9th Summer Camp I ‘virtually’ attended – the jig was included in the kit, and Cathy Zielske showed us how to use it…..

Once the background was stamped, I used the leaf die to cut the large leaf out of white card stock, but I added some colour by stamping the small splotch stamp so it wasn’t quite so stark. I also decided to add the panel to a white card base to bring it together.

I also decided to add some sequins so I hunted through my stash and found a Catherine Pooler sequin mix, but when I open it some of them just kinda fell onto my card – so I stuck them down where they fell. That’s one way to decided where they go, isn’t it?

I hope you can come and join us with your girlie autumn/fall leaves creations – I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
