November Card Chain Challenge at SOS

This is my last card for the Card Chain Challenge for this year. I will be visiting my Dad in California for the holidays, and all my card making stuff is in Maryland.  I'll be scrapbooking in California - lots to catch up on.

I decided to go with Deborah's colors and sketch and the theme of gratitude. Three of the 5 options available this month.

I started with a kraft card base, and added my layer of patterned "taupe" paper with a die cut circle.  Leaves were added in a glittered gold, and deep red. The circle die used was from MFT, the leaves were from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment banner from SSS. The sentiment is from a Taylored Expressions set, and it was heat embossed in old gold embossing powder from Stampendous.  Its fun to get a hand made card in the mail, and fun to send one out to someone new! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Great use of those leaves, and way to cross the beams with products from so many companies! I love when that happens!
