Thankful & Blessed


It's day two of the CAS-ual Fridays sneak peeks!  Before we blink, we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving, so just in time to celebrate, Michele has designed an awesome new set called Amber Waves. It is so versatile including fabulous sentiments, individual images and background images.  

For my first card, I used three fall colors to stamp a background, stamping off with each color, tilting the background panel and adding the sentiment.  


For my second card I highlighted the smaller of the two grain images.  I embossed the image with clear embossing powder and then added distress inks to provide more definition.
 
 When you pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog you'll see the variety of sentiments and images in this set and I'm sure you'll fall in love!

Wonderful cards! Those wheat stalks are just so cool. I love how the bit of twine echoes the wheat itself on your second card. Very creative. Bev

Have been looking for a great Thanksgiving set for years, and never have bought one! Love your cards! I am particularly smitten with that bottom one. the DP at the bottom is so perfect with the stamp! Hope you are doing well, friend! *hugs*
