I Am Thankful

Today I was in the mood to be "Thankful", so I decided to make a Thankful card.  I found this pre-colored image that I won a very long time ago from what was then called Crafty Purple Frog, now it is Ching-Chou Kuik  this was part of a decoupage sheet called Carnation Fairy, but is now sold just as a fairy in her Etsy shop, it is still called Carnation Fairy.  It only comes with the wings and is not pre-colored.  I created the sentiment for this image.  Feel free to copy and save it for your own personal use.  Let me know when you use it, I'd love to see what you do with it!  :)

Here is what I did...  I cut out the sentiment and the image together using a fun frame die.  I used some older papers I found, some cheese cloth, a couple pieces of scrap ribbon, a flower, leaf dies and gems.  I put some Glossy Accents over her eyes, necklace and the accessory on her dress.

Thanks for looking!

Such a beautiful card creation with lots of wonderful things to look at. So blessed you joined our bi-weekly Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and hope you join us again for a new Challenge starting today. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Isaiah 40:8 which tells us, "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever."

Have a blessed week,
