Good Afternoon everyone. I hope everyone is having a good week. Mine is busier than I thought it would be. I had hopes of making a couple of cards for challenges but didn't have time until today. I have had a touch of a bug and I have had no energy to do anything after work.
It is time for the Sugar Bowl. In addition to following the sketch, this week we needed to include Thankfulness. I had this image colored and had to use it soon before Fall turned into Winter. I decided this was a good time. The colors looked like they matched better before I put it under the OTT lite to take a picture. After I put together the card I had a piece of paper left on my desk all cut. I looked at the card and realized I forgot to lay down one of the pieces. I didn't dare try to lift the DP knowing that it would rip so you will need to imagine the 3rd layer in the bottom right of the sketch. I will keep it to use on a later card.
The image is tall and thin which made it difficult to fit into one of my spellbinders circles so I used the scalloped which gave me more room. I'm not a person who likes alot of blank white on a card so I filled it with the saying and brads. All in all I like the way it came out.
Thank you for looking at my card. Let me know what you think.
