Thankful Blossom

Hello happy stampers! Just a quickie today. I made this card to play along with the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge - make a "thankful" card.

I used the Copic markers shown above to color the sunflower (Autumn Beauty from Gina K). I didn't take step by step coloring photos on this one, but I did on a previous card, which you can see here.

To create the embossed frame, I cut a piece of Pure Luxury Sweet Corn cardstock to size and then cut an oval from the center using my oval Nestabilities. Then I sponged around the inside and outside edges with Vivid Coffee Bean ink.

Next, I ran the frame through my Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.

I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss & Tan Leather and used a Sweet Corn cardbase. The sentiment is also from Autumn Beauty. The border punch is by EK Success.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

What a beautiful card. I was just looking at the splitcoast challenge called "outside the box". I thought that is what you made the card for, but I see it was another challenge
