Good morning everyone!!! The November DD/DDA challenge, hosted by Sharon Harnist (StamperSharon), is to make a Thanksgiving table decoration or a thank you for the hostess of the thanksgiving dinner. The only *twist* is to use a heart somewhere on the project. I spent off and on all day on this thank you card....I couldn't seem to make up my mind about the paper, layout, image...I can't believe I actually finished this!!!
The Lockhart image from Ellen Hutson, LLC was stamped with Memento Black and colored with copics. I added crystal effects to the globe to make it look like glass but it is difficult to see in this picture. Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie were sponged in the background and I added the little dark green crystal heart to the sentiment.
The close up shows the shine of the globe. The scalloped cardstock is from Brazzill and the papers are from Stampin Up!, Daisy D's, and K&Co. The sentiment is from the Girlfriend set by Crafty Secrets.
The rust colored ribbon from Hobby Lobby and the Primas, button, and paper leaves are all layered together with glue dots. I borrowed the idea to tie a bow with the twine through the button from Amy (Pickletree)...thanks, Amy, for the inspiration!!
