Happy Thanksgiving Dreamweaver Dream Scheme


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Today for me is a day of gratitude and thanks for all the blessings in my life, my family and friends. While here in California we don't have the distinct seasons that the East Coast and Midwest have, I have noticed the crisp mornings and the way the Japanese maple in my backyard has turned a beautiful fiery red. I chose to use this week the Leaf Icon stencil (LL471) and the Thank You 2 stencil (LM147) . I pasted these with Gold Metallic Paste (DGP). The paper I used was some paper I received in a kit from Club Scrap and has a lightly embossed paisley pattern in it. I was originally going to gold leaf the leaves but as the paste dried I noticed how the paste picked up the pattern in the paper, so I decided to leave it just as it was. Then I layered the papers onto brown card stock and then the background paper I found not to long ago. This card is really simple, but that's my style. I wish all of you a blessed Thanksgiving and a creative holiday.
