Time Out #69 - Inspired by Words Challenge

Hi friends!  This week over at Time Out our challenge is the Inspired by Words challenge.  We give you a quote to be inspired by.  The quote this week is:
"Give thanks with a grateful heart"
Perfect quote for the season we are going into.

As soon as I saw the word "grateful", I went immediately to this stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink.  I pulled out my Color Bursts and water color paper to create a fall watercolored background.  I die cut the leaf from it then stamped the veins in chocolate ink.  I die cut the frame/word and layered it over the leaf die cut.  I adhered this to a vanilla cardstock that was run through a woodgrain impression plate.  I added twine and gold sequins, mounted it on green cardstock, and then on the vanilla base.

 You can see more from the Time Out team and our guest, Karren J, on the Time Out blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic card, Lisa! I haven't seen this leaf and die set before and the way you used it is stunning! Great job!

Wow Lisa - this is beautiful! The colour bursts are just beautiful and really brought your leaf to life! The white border and background highlight the colours brilliantly - love it!
