Give Thanks For All You Have

Have you given thanks lately?! Thought it would be nice to use a stamp set I had in my stash that I have never used before and the sentiment was perfect!
This card was fairly easy and quick to make. I started off cutting the bow at 3/4 inches using the CTMH Artiste cricut cart. I lined a piece of colonial white card stock with the gold polka dot washi which allowed me to use washi at the bottom and top of the card. 

I stamped the flowers in VersaMark and then sprinkled with the white embossing powder. I heated the image with my craft heater. I then stamped the stems second generation in topiary ink. I took my sponge dauber and dabbed in the desert sand ink and used a circular motion to go around the flowers. As you can see the embossed images resists the ink and makes the flower really stand out! I then stamped the sentiment in chocolate ink and distressed the edge of the card stock with desert sand. I added a strip of washi tape to the card base then adhered the stamped mat. I then added the bow in the corner. All done!!
