Count Your Blessings

Today I am sharing a Thanksgiving card.  I guess I should make a few of those since Thanksgiving comes before Christmas.  I will only send a few Thanksgiving cards.

This card is made for a couple challenges.

The first challenge is Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge which is gilding/gold.  I used gold glitter paint inside the leaves and around the outside of the frame for the trees.  I did try to gold emboss it but on watercolor paper it just seems to melt into the paper.  Maybe it is just me.  I believe this card in Clean and Simple.

The second challenge is from Monday's Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.  The challenge is Go Glossy.  Gold/Glitter/Glossy Accents - I believe the card qualifies.  There is Glossy Accents on all the leaves so the glitter shines through the Glossy Accents.

The third challenge is from Wednesday's Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.  The challenge this week is Thanks/Thanksgiving.

The card is a little smaller than an A2 card.  It is completely flat so can be mailed with no extra postage.  This never happens to me.  The sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers.

Thanks for stopping by.

That gold glitter paint looks fab, especially on the warm autumnal shades you've used. Thanks so much for linking up at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, Anita x
