Thankful in Gold

Happy Monday, peeps!  What a lovely fall weekend we had!  Did you remember to set your clocks back?  I love having an "extra" hour, but hate that it gets dark so early!!  I have one of my stamp clubs coming this morning, so this will be short and sweet!  My card today is for two challenges, the Inkspire Me color challenge and the Festive Friday Thanksgiving/Thank You challenge:

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0020, Stampin Up, Thanksgiving, Thank you

And here we go:

I had a piece of Sahara Sand already cut to mat size in my folder, so I embossed it with Sahara Sand ink and the Buffalo Check background stamp.  The wreath is from a new-to-me company, Fun Stampers Journey; it was stamped in Mint Macaron and fussy-cut.  I heat-embossed some leave with Gold Encore ink and gold embossing powder, then added some "berries" punched with a 1/8" punch:

The "Thankful" is a die from Close to My Heart, as is the "give thanks" sentiment that I stamped on the inside left of my card; the blessing sentiment is from Right at Home:

I managed to give a lot of companies some love for this card, LOL!  

After our shoebox packing party on Saturday, Cassidy went to the pastor's house, where she took charge and gave the boys some karate lessons!  It gave the pastor's wife a little break and they were both sad when Daddy came to pick her up!

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Sweet card, LeAnne! The Buffalo Check is pretty in Sahara Sand with the Mint wreath. All the gold accents are the statement pieces, so cute! Cassidy is a girl with many talents! She looks like a pro in the pix!

That mint is so wonderful with your kraft, LeAnne! and I adore that Buffalo plaid... mad for the plaid!

Beautiful card, LeAnne! That wreath is gorgeous and I love how you added the leaves, berries and the greeting! I agree with the comments the Buffalo Check as it just makes your card pop! TFS and stay dry today! :)

Love that minty wreath - such a sense of movement in the design. Your little gold berries - fabulous - and I do like the country feel of the checked background.... another regret at not buying that stamp either.
