Give Thanks

For my American friends who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, I hope you had a blessed day! I had a wonderful time getting together with my family in NE Ohio and today we are among the MANY people who are out and about on Black Friday! Today also marks the start of another Raise the Bar challenge and Joni has asked that we use "thanks" or "gratitude" somewhere on our card. I love the fonts that Julee Tilman used on this Verve Plain Jane and it's such a timely verse...not just for this season but for every day! I cut up the leafy flourish so I could arrange it to fit better on my card. It's a simple layout using these yummy papers by My Mind's Eye.
Here's what else I used:
PAPER: Lost & Found Two "Breeze" pad by MME, Aqua Mist and Vintage Cream by PTI.
INK: Noir Black Palette hybrid ink pad.
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Aqua Mist satin ribbon by PTI, Vanilla vintage flower adornment by SU, Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die, Trim - ? source, MS tiny hearts border punch.
