Give Thanks Always - Gratitude


Hello again my dear sweet friends

I have slowed down considerably in making cards this past year and have realized I miss making them.  I had some cardstock I have been wanting to use and so began the process of seeing what I could come up with.  I have been thinking a lot about gratitude lately and decided to have that as my theme.  
My only goals were to keep it clean and simple, use fall colors, add some bling and use a sentiment rather than an image.  It was so much fun making this card and my passion for cardmaking has been reignited and I can't wait to make many many more.

I am submitting this card into the following challenges:


Hugs and smiles
