SOS #77 - Thanks or Thanksgiving

Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash. This week we ask you to make a Thanks or Thanksgiving card. Couldn't be easier!

For my card I went 100% with stuff laying on my desk:

Yes, 100% (except for the card base.) The panel with dots of Liquid Pearls was inspired by a card from the Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop. That's right, I took a Holiday Card Workshop even though I rarely make holiday cards. That's because the techniques and ideas can be use for any card, not just for the holidays. I love those classes.

I used lots of tiny dots of Glossy Accents to stick down the die-cut panel. I tried lots of other things and that one seemed to work the best. The striped papers were out on my desk from this card, so I opened and used my MFT Postage Stamp edge die on a piece of it. I trimmed off a sliver to place beneath the die-cut panel.

The flower parts were out on my desk, left over from this card. I actually used an eyelet for the center, then filled it with Liquid Pearls. The sentiment was out on my desk, too. The Kraft panel was from my recently-organized remnant box. Stuff is amazingly easy to find, now!

Now it's YOUR turn! Go into your stash and make a Thanks or Thanksgiving card, then come back to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!
