Give Thanks

The theme is Sentiment Windows at PTI's MIM with Dawn McVey. 
She shows us how to cut and embellish a view into our cards.

I cut my window with Brushed Off: Oval (the smaller die), after adding Simply Chartruese
Pattern Pack's plaid and vellum to the front of my card.
2 images were stamped in the window, one with a sentiment, the other full of corn.
Kind of Corny.
Here's a look on the inside

First stamped the sentiment corn, with Orange Zest & Terra-cotta Tile, masked it, 
and did the stamping with the corn kernel image. 
Happy Thanksgiving was stamped with Americana, which was also the base color 
for the kernel corn.

I think depending on the season, if you asked me 'what's your favorite autumn set,' 
Leaf Prints has to be at the top. Gorgeous shaped leaves and veins, perfect for ombre stamping, 
and included is this sweet stamp to add to the back of my card, ready for my signature.

PTI twine, and button (Vintage Button Mix)

I love seeing what everyone creates each Monday, using these video tutorials.
I've learned so much over the years, from the talented designers and from
all of you too. 
Thank you Dawn! And thanks to all of you!
Happy Crafting!
