Harvest Blessings

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I am right on schedule with my Thanksgiving preparations. So that makes me happy.

I wanted to post this card before I get into my day. This is another that I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Lydia was our hostess and she wants us to use any outdoorsy inspiration for our card.

My inspiration comes from the gardens in my neighborhood including my own. Asters, butterflies, pear trees can all be found here.

My background designer paper is from Graphic 45 -the Eden Symphony collection. I paired it up with Stampin-Up's so saffron and cherry cobbler card stock.

The printed aster tag is from Crafty Secrets "autumn blessings". I used the Verve set "bountiful harvest" and stamped in cherry cobbler ink.

Added a flag pennant and a bow with a vintage brad center.

That's my card for today. Hope all my American readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge is to use ribbon.
2.  Ribbon Carousel has a giving thanks/fall challenge.
3.  The Stamping Boutique has a giving thanks challenge.
