Thanksgiving card for Card Concept Challenge

Time for the Card Concept: Challenge #22 - Thank "fall". Love the current challenge! My card was inspired by the colors and the variety of fall objects.

My card falls more in the Freestyle Collage style.

My card is inspired by this card. I love the panel/subway text stamp and am always looking for inspiration.

I originally planned on having 3 panels of the text across the card, but my measurements were off so I only was able to fit 2 panels, so I put the tree in so it wouldn't be off balance.

Here is a detail shot. The "leaves" of the tree were created with a blending tool and distress inks.

And here is the inside of the card:

I adore that little squirrel!

Thanks for checking out my blog!

  1. Oh yeah - the wee squirrel is beyond cutie-patootie! Your shading is absolutely perfect - beautiful choice of colors! Great save on your initial design...I think the tree was absolutely 'made' for this spot and seems to highlight the text! I love the stamped images atop the text! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
