Harvest Blessings ~ Give Thanks

The challenge at
Double D is
Harvest Blessings/Give Thanks
being hosted by Team Diane
and using the mood board for inspiration.

I love this mood board (BIG pat on back..LOL)

I did a very simple and I mean simple card.

For my birthday, one of the cards I received had a
crimped protective covering over it
which gave me the idea to use the same for the texture of my card.

I was determined to use my poor  and very neglected 'crimper'
which I did, but however, it took me an hour to find where I
had put!

I started out by spritzing a snippet of brown card stock
with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist,
which to my dismay has all but evaporated 
(not on the paper, I mean in the bottle, it is almost empty and it was a FULL bottle)... ugh!

I die cut a never before used Poppystamp die Grendon Wreath.
It not only cuts the wreath with the acorn,
but a 3pc acorn as well,
my acorn is covered with glitter-y goodness.

The sentiment was cut once from a metallic gold and a
second time from the same spritzed card stock.
It is the same die that is the prize at the
Double D challenge.

So pop on over to the
Double D challenge blog and join in..
The DT has once again outdone themselves
with fabulous inspiration!!

Sometimes less IS more as in this case with your gorgeous wreath, isn't that divine!!! I adore that sweet little acorn too so cute!

Darlene said...

Just perfect Diane! What a great idea to use the crimped background ... really sets of the wreath beautifully! AWESOME creation as always!!

Anne Temple said...

Great CAS card. Love the crimped background. Now to find mine...... :-)

Leslie Miller said...

I love this board, too, especially those colored acorns and the acorn basket. All the boards have been just too inspiring! I've got a real thing for CAS cards, which I don't do well, so whenever I see one as beautiful as this I just swoon. Love the wreath in the perfect paper to give it color and pattern in just the right amount, and the acorn with gold is soooo pretty! Love the gold highlight on the sentiment, as well. Beautiful card, Diane!

Lovely card! All the glitter is wonderful. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon.

Hi Diane! What a lovely card, beautiful wreath in those Fall colours. Ha! And you set me off hunting to check that I still have my crimper as well :)

Keeping your Grandson in my thoughts here. He's young and also, as you say, determined - which is a lot of the battle.

Special hugs

Di xx

When I saw this wreath, I knew that I had seen it somewhere before. Love the simple and delicate image on your card. It is all that is needed. Good luck! Thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad Challenge.

Love your wreath & the crimped background! Think I know where mine is--but haven't used it forever! None of my TA have evaporated, but quite a few won't spray.

Amelia Breytenbach said...

This is gorgeous Diane! Love the delicate wreath and background

Carol L said...

This is such a lovely CAS card, and such a great save on the crimped panel! Happy Belated birthday too BTW!!
