Double D - Thankful - Blessings - Grateful


 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is our host today and her theme of choice is:
and here's an inspiration board she has created to help get you started . . .

As you can see, I basically went with the bottom left image as the basis for my creation.  I've once again went through a lot of my Fall papers, dies & stickers for today's card.

The dies I've used are:

EK Success-CutterBee 'Mason Jars'  (OLD)


Which I die cut the largest one twice ... once from white card stock of which I then water colored in the water and another from clear packing medium (from one of my die sets) which I added over the top then added my Fall stems.

Memory Box 'Wild Stems'  (#99436) - OLD

PoppyStamps 'Monterey Vine' (#1432) - OLD


I used my Tombow Markers, Water & an artist brush for the coloring of the leaves.

  I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!
