Pearls of Thanks

Next week will be a lot of fun as I will have some new designs and sneak peeks on new releases for you to see!

Our Daily Bread Designs will be releasing some really neat sets on August 15, and I will be showing those this next week. But today I wanted to use the wonderful Give Thanks set that is a must-have for fall and Thanksgiving cards.

I stamped the sentiment and cornucopia in Chocolate Chip ink. I used ink pads and an aqua brush to color in the cornucopia and then distressed the edges, sponging Chocolate Chip ink on as I went. I sewed the Basic Grey Mellow DP to the DCWV textured brown paper and then added my piece of Chocolate Chip satin ribbon. I layered this piece using Stampin' Dimensionals to the Mellow Moss base.

Today's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge was Be-jeweled! I used pearls in the upper left-hand corner of my card to give it a shabby chic look. The pearls were the last thing I added to the card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Keep checking back, as I will have blog candy from Our Daily Bread Designs soon!
