Catered Crop–Thank You Kindly Recipe Swap

Today I have a new card for the Catered Crop Thank You Kindly recipe swap.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner it is the perfect time to feel thankful or give some one a thank you card.

For my Thank You Kindly card, I pulled out some Papertrey stamps and dies to create this card.


2013-11-12 CC Thanks

I colored the gemstones and sequins with a copic marker so that they would coordinate with my project. 

As always, Linda has curate a Pinterest board full of inspiration for the swap.  Click on the photo below to go to her board on Pinterest.

Hi, Cheryl! This is lovely! I love the color palette and the beautiful and cohesive way you have integrated it through out your design! Loads of fun and wonderful visuals at work in that focal grouping, but nothing distracting! Great design fabulously executed!

The composition of your card is marvelous, I think what I love best is the richness of the colors you've chosen. They work so well together and to me they make me think of the blue skies of autumn, the trees, and the lingering beauty of the leaves. I love that you have such texture in the layers and such a range of colors and patterns. They work wonderfully together. Thank you so much for coming back to play along with us at Opus Gluei, it is nice to see you being inspired and sharing your creations with us!
