Time Out Challenge #100 - Thankful

Hi everyone!  I hope everyone had a nice holiday.  Mine were a little different.  I had two funerals within days of each other.  Very sad this time of year.  But that's life.
Time Out is challenging you to be thankful.  I know I'm thankful for many things.  We are sponsored by Verve for this challenge.
I'm using one of Verve's stamp sets called Kindness Matters.  The flower is actually one stamp, and I stamped it three times, colored it, and cut it out to layer it with dimensional tape.  I stamped it on Bristol smooth white paper with Versafine onyx black in and embossed it with clear powder.  I colored each layer with Zig markers and watercolored it with a water brush.  The background was sponged with Distress Oxide inks to match the flower and spritzed it with water and shimmer spritz.  The sentiment was stamped and then the panel was die cut with the stitched scallop die.
Verve is giving one stamp set of their choice to our winner for this challenge. 
We also have Julee from Verve and Bobby as our guests for this challenge.
You can see more inspiration from the design team on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
