 So, I would LOVE to see my crafty friends playing along with us -

The Challenge is on our
I hope you guys will join that group as well...

- here's what I created to Inspire you -

That "Thank You" Die is so Elegant - I die cut it out 3x's to give it more dimension - As you can tell, I pulled out my blending tool for this one -
I used Water color cardstock and after I blended my 3 colors together
I spritzed some water on it, then lifted a little bit up, using a paper towel-
After it dried, I added the Brass Distress Spray, using a splatter paint brush - it dried super quick

The Scallop background is Rust colored Burlap - which cut out so well
in my sizzix die cutting machine, Then I Die cut my panel to fit the scallop layer - I cut a piece of White fun foam to pop it up over the scalloped burlap - Adhere it down to an Ivory Card base (A2) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Added my Sentiment wording - then added some sequins

Beautiful Fall colors to send a warm Thank You to someone Special!

Theresa, this is gorgeous! I am so enamored with the colors... they are so soft and beautiful, perfectly topped with a sprinkling of sparkly happiness. :) The sentiment die is stunning and I love that you used a scallop base layer for extra fanciness. It's so pretty and whimsical, just like the font. Lovely work as always, my dear friend! Have a sparkly night. :)

Hugs and blessings,
