Happy Thanksgiving

Hey there.

Happy Thanksgiving
if you live in the US and are celebrating today.

I am thankful for all you wonderful blog readers whether you are celebrating
Thanksgiving today or not.


I've used another tissue paper leaf.

Here's a photo that shows more of the shine.


I used the same technique that I used for this card.

This technique was brought to us by Loll.  Her tutorial is featured at Splitcoaststampers this week.
If you're not a member at SCS, you can find the tutorial here on YouTube.

Since I used watercolor on my tissue paper leaf and
Thanksgiving is a holiday, I'll add this to the gallery at
Challenge ends at midnight PST, November 24th. 


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Bonnie, I thank you so much that you are. It's nothing that you are at the other end of the world, but the world is not so big that I do not feel your friendship. Thank you, my Friend

Love that amazingly beautiful leafand the simple stitched die cut but what makes this stand out is that subtle background embossing. It's just perfect adding a little more texture. I have never seen it before.
