Give Thanks with Jellypark Friday Friends

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Happy Friday! there is just something wonderful about a Friday, isn't there?! doesn't matter if you are no longer in school or working, this day just always has a little extra sparkle. you KNOW that Saturday is right around the corner! hope you have some fun things planned with family and friends! :)

A new challenge begins over at Jellypark Friday Friends - Give Thanks. pop by the blog to see the oh, so cute projects by other DT members, as well as some fun new release images! Claire always comes up with the cutest stuff! I had taken a little break from the team, so I appreciate them welcoming me back with open arms. my card is for all of them!

I chose to use the charity image, 'Girl with Thank You bunting', for my card. Ruth, one of the DT members, runs a sketch challenge blog called Fetch a Sketch. I'm using her current sketch for inspiration. digital papers & elements are Webster's Pages Citrus Squeeze. yes, you can even get their new collections as digital items! they print out so beautifully! :) the baker's twine is also Webster's Pages so I knew it would be a perfect match in color. (the turquoise is actually a lesser shade on the blue floral paper). buttons are from my stash. I added little touches of rock candy distress stickles to the flowers. can you believe I actually used a white card stock base? yep, surprised me, too. but it seemed the perfect bg for all of these gorgeous colors.

just gotta step outside of that comfort zone every once in a while. seems I've been doing that more than usual with a 'no stamping' card as well as a 'no embellies' card. who knows what you will see next? all black and white? nah...... even that is pushing it for me! ha!
