Giving Thanks with the Dueling Darlings

The 15th of the month is the time for our monthly duel between the Dueling Darling Divas and Dazzlers.  Today is the 18th and I'm a few days late to the duel.  This is getting to be a bad habit with me! This month our hostesses Carol for team Divas and Shelley for team Dazzlers chose the theme "Give Thanks"...So appropriate for this month of Thanksgiving!  I'm on team D.D.Divas and received from Carol this wonderful card kit full of beautiful papers, lovely stamped images and sentiments and gorgeous embellishments:

  • Papers:  K & Co paper pack
  • Stamped Images:  Wheelbarrow and sentiment from Stampin' Up's "Grateful" set.  Praying boy and girl from Stampendous.  Second sentiment from Hobby Lobby
  • Ribbon from Michaels, glitter brown paper tape is Recollections, and various other embellishments like twine, adhesive gems, and leaf stickers.
Here's my finished card:

I colored the image with Copic markers and used an Espresso Brown cardstock for background layers for both the image and the designer paper.  I used this sketch for my layout:

This is the inside of the card.

We were asked to share what we are most thankful for.  I'm thankful for so much:
  • Jesus saving grace
  • Family and Friends
  • Good health
  • Freedom to live the life I do
  • A lovely home to shelter me 
  • Plentiful food to nourish me
  • So many blessings that I do not have room to list them all!
