Wildflowers in Thanks

Good morning everyone!  I hope that all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful and relaxed holidays!  I found myself within enough time to really think about everyone for whom I was grateful and I made sure that I called and/or made cards for them. 

This card is for a particular friend who has recently gone so far above and beyond for me.  Her own cards tend toward vintage collage.  I don't have the talent nor the supplies for that style, so I tried to base the card in my own fairly simple style but by adding a text background and some sponging on the edges, I think it takes on a vintage look.

The stamp set is Wildflowers.  I also used Sweet 'n Sassy's Lacey Eyelet Border Dies to add the lace and ribbon embellishment.

The wildflower stamp that I used is so flexible.  Bridget created this "simply" stunning card; Harriet used it on this soft and gentle card and Jessica created a bright bouquet on her cheerful card!

The inside uses a sentiment from Blessing & Thanks which has a few sentiments that are perfect for Thanksgiving but is also great year-round with its thank you and blessings sentiments.

Thanks for dropping by!
