Hi, Diane with you today.

Our challenge for this week is Thankful.
November is the perfect time of the year
to look back and be thankful for all we have,
and I don't mean material things either.
I mean family, loved ones, our health and to
be able to live as we do,
so very thankful for that!!


I love the elegance of this card.
I started by cutting 2 Impression Twig Wreaths.
One from Super Gold Metallic card stock
I slightly offset one from the other.

A bow was cut from the same paper I used for the sides,
using Finishing Touches Filigree 3D Itty Bitty Bow


The sentiment was stamped from JustRite Thank You Daffodil set.
I paper pierced around the punched oval with
Crafters Tools by Cheery Lynn Designs.
I also used these tools to help with poking out the
intricate design of the bow.

To finish Le Creme pearls were added.

Thank you for visiting with me today.

Etering the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments .... ATG
Cuttlebug Mania .... Thanks/Thankful
Shopping Our Stash .... Thanks

Oh, I like this! The wreath and the bow are both very pretty. Nice size on both of them, too. I need more bow dies. I keep saying that. Next order, maybe.
