QKR Stampede #218 - Give Thanks/Thank You

Can you believe next Thursday is Thanksgiving?  This week at QKR Stampede our challenge is "Give Thanks/Thank You".  I  chose image #3901 Leaf and did the triple layer technique that was inspired by Stamp With Anne's card on Pinterest.  I imported my image into Silhouette Studio, copied, resized, and place it around the card.  I cut out 3 different sizes of papers and glued them together and printed it out.  I made a mask for the center leaf, flicked orange, yellow, maroon, and brown paint on the card, then took the mask off and colored the center leaf.   Orange cs from my stash as is the orange button tied with waxed brown thread.  Sentiment stamped with chocolate brown embossing ink and banner hand cut.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see all the THANKFUL cards my DT sisters have made and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
