Give Thanks Mojo

Monday, October 17, 2016
Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch. I knew I wanted to make a card for Lori's Falliday Fest challenge to make a Thanksgiving card with a wheat image. So I had to tweak my card just a bit to fit in the wheat stamp I wanted to use, but all the sketch elements are there, I just swapped to a wide card and changed out the rectangle for a square.

The wheat image from Good Work is stamped twice in soft suede onto designer paper and colored with a blender pen.  I then stamped the flower and leafy elements from Autumn Blessings in soft suede and cut with the coordinating Autumn Thanks Die Set, coloring again with a blender pen.  The Give Thanks sentiment (also from Autumn Blessings) is stamped onto the square and I gave all my layers a bit of distress with some antique linen and vintage photo inks.

The soft sky base is stamped tone on tone with the wheat across the bottom edge and I added some aqua polka dot paper I had in the scrap pile as my accents, cutting off one bit of a pierced die cut to make the strip on my triangle and then accenting with flatback pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative start to your week. For more inspiration with the sketch, be sure to head on over to the Mojo Monday blog.
