Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Thanks

Many of us just celebrated Thanksgiving Day; however, being thankful should not happen just once a year. The practice of saying thank you or sending thank you notes seems to be dwindling, so we, at Card Crafter's Circle, would like you to create a thank you card for this week's challenge.

We are happy to have Milk Coffee Stamps joining us again with sponsorship for you! The winner's prize purse is 3 Milk Coffee images of their choice, and our super sponsor also provides each of our Top 3 with an image of their choice too! How nice is that?

My little card is Thanksgiving oriented, but your entry does not have to be for the Thanksgiving holiday/season. It just has to be a thank-you card.

I've colored my digital image using copic markers and cut it into a rectangle shape which I then matted on orange card. My card base is tan matted with brown and then my DP which is from a Recollections pad. I also took a companion DP (same pad) and matted it on orange then added a gold ribbon with double bow. The flowers at the bottom are from Prima and the yellow brads in the center are from Basic Gray. The leaves are punched from scrap card and then "shaped" using a stylis from my flower making tools kit. I did not add a sentiment because the background DP is made up of words, and "thanks" shows up just above my image.
