Thanks and Giving

I love the images in the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.  But I also love the sentiments as well.  Today I am using the "Let our lives be full of both Thanks and Giving" sentiment for a few challenges.  I have been missing out on the online challenges recently.  I am hoping to get back in the swing of things and entering a few each week.  This one card is being used for three different challenges; a theme challenge at Paper Craft Crew Challenge, a color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Here they are:

Here is my card:

I decided to do some double time stamping with the leaves.  I love these colors together.  When I saw the strips on the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to use.  The Bohemian Suite has matching Delightful Dijon paper and washi tape.  I added one Island Indigo stamped and die cut leaf tied together with some linen thread.  I will probably send this card to family that I will not be seeing on Thanksgiving.

Thanks so much for checking out my project today.  I hope to be back more this week for a few more challenges.
