IB194 Thankful Wheat

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Time for a lovely new Inspired By challenge...I just love both of these prompts!  Check out these beautiful wreaths:


And here is our optional sketch:

As I said, I do love wreaths and I was tempted to do a wreath card, but I challenged myself to do something different, so I made a wheat sheaf using an Impression Obsession die, some woodgrain DSP and some seasonal hues:

I used cardstocks in Very Vanilla, Bumblebee, Soft Succulent and Soft Suede to create my wheat, then added some gold satin ribbon and a Linen Specialty Paper tag.  The sentiment, also stamped in Soft Succulent, is from a retired set called Truly Grateful.  I also added some gold metallic pearls:

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Pretty Pumpkins and another image from the retired Truly Grateful set...I love how this looks!

I am also entering this at Little Red Wagon, where their challenge this week is So Very Thankful!

I hope you'll play along with our challenge...those wreaths are bound to give you lots of inspiration, and you MUST check out what the DT has created....honestly, they are so talented, I am not sure why they keep me around, LOL!  You can see them all at Inspired By!  Thanks for popping in today!

Wayne is stuck in Bermuda (more about that later) and he sent me this photo from his hotel patio:

Not too shabby!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
