Thankful Thanksgiving Card



 Happy Friday Friends!!  Gosh, it's beginning to feel like fall.  I dropped my daughter off at the bus stop this morning and it was 43 degrees.  It's probably colder where you are at but 43 is chilly to me.  I worked on a Thanksgiving card yesterday.  I decided to give it a more shabby chic appearance using lace, crochet flower and a stick pin!


 I came across my Penny Black rubber stamp with the cute mouse and pumpkin and I actually had a different design in mind initially but it evolved into this shabby chic style.  I'm going to be honest with ya'. . .many times my card design is a result of whatever material I have at the top of my pile of craft goodies.  I don't like digging through containers because wow, it can be a big mess so if it's easily accessible, that ends up being the materials I use on my projects.  From time to time, I'll be motivated to look through my things and find something interesting to use.  
 

I had dyed the crochet flower a while back and decided to use.  I also had worked on a few stick pins using opal heart beads and used one of them on my card.  I rubber stamped the  image on to watercolor paper and colored the image with my Copic Markers.


I glued on the Prima flower on to the crochet flower and added lace to the card and that's basically it.  Anyway. . .that's it for today!  I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!!!
