Harvest Blessings

Thought I would switch gears from my Christmas cards to a Thanksgiving one. I cut the ovals from my Creative Memories oval patterns in 2 sizes. I sponged on Vintage Photo DI for shading, and cut out 2 Tim Holtz mini flourish Sizzix M&S die cuts for vines. The sentiment actually comes from a Unity/Jillibean Soup Christmas stamp set that I only inked the word Blessings with my Stampin Write marker, then paper punched it out. The back of the card is just another oval that I scored on one side only so it would open correctly. And I got lucky that the card sits upright and not tip to one side or the other!! I also made sure that this would fit into an A2 size envelope, perfect for mailing!! I am sending this card off to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog where the theme is Get In Shape, make a shaped card. Thanks so much for stopping in!!
