In Everything Give Thanks



I thought this Earth image from Michell Perkett was a great choice for a "Thankful" card. Lala Land Crafts is holding a challenge right now to create a card for thankfulness, and they are giving some amazing blog candy - but you need to enter by midnight, Monday 23rd. Also, at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, the theme is Thanksgiving. I added the sentiment "In Everything Give Thanks". I used the sketch from Pixie Cottage, but turned it into an easel card. At Creative Inspirations the challenge was to sparkle - not only does this card now sparkle, but so does my desk, my keyboard and me - from head t toe! The challenge at Copic Creations was to color gold. I colored Earth's dress with gold copics and then added a layer of liquid glass with gold glitter over it to make it really shine. I love making easel cards!
