Shopping Our Stash #178 - Thanks!

Good morning! It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! It's all about being thankful, whether it be a thank you/I'm grateful card, or a Thanksgiving card or project, with that holiday fast approaching in the States, we want to see it! Here's what I came up with:

 Here's the inside:

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketch #162, which ended yesterday. (I'm always late to the party!) All the papers are from the same collection. I used this gold paper that has a subtle shimmer on it for the main panel and the inside. (That paper was really hard to photograph. It looks more like kraft, plus you can't really see the shimmer. But trust me, it's there!) I embossed it, which kind of distressed it in the process, but I liked how it looked so used it. (Like I meant to do that! LOL!) I broke off the shank on the flower button before gluing it down. I also went around the edges of the large panels with a gold pen. A simple sentiment finished the inside.

You can always use more thank you/thanksgiving cards. Why not link your new project up at Shopping Our Stash? While there, check out the amazing cards my teammies created and leave them some bloggy love.Thanks for hanging out with me! Have a great day!
