TCC122 Give Thanks

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the #122 {Bountiful Blessings} Challenge at The Card Concept!  I was inspired by the deep, rich colors of the door, fruit and vegetables along with the texture to create a Shabby and Vintage/Mixed Media card!

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, I decided to ink up the retired Stampin’ Up! Grand Cornucopia for the main image and use the retired Verve Stamps sentiment from Autumn Blessings along with some older designer papers.  I have not used the Grand Cornucopia in years and wanted to give that stamp set some "love" :-)
I am also linking this card to the Make My Monday #107 “Fruit and/or Vegetable” Challenge, the IN{K}spire_ME#403 “Autumn/Halloween” Challenge and the SC298 Sketch Challenge from Splitcoaststampers (this sketch was from 2010, but thankfully, SCS challenges never end:-)).

If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- such wonderful inspiration from all!

Stamp the cornucopia image with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor with Stampin’ Write markers (see below for colors) and die cut with an oval stitched die.
Mount onto another oval die cut from espresso cardstock.  

Stamp the sentiment onto espresso cardstock with Versamark™ ink, apply gold embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Die cut with a banner die.

Emboss a piece of designer paper with the Tin Tile Detailed Embossing Folder, lightly sand with a sanding block, trim and onto a piece of espresso cardstock.  Layer the other pieces of designer paper onto espresso cardstock and position onto the panel per the sketch.

Add the rust satin ribbon strip (wrapping the ends behind the panel) and mount the panel onto a piece of rust cardstock.  Adhere the entire panel onto a white card base.
Add the die cut oval image along with the sentiment using dimensional foam (or chipboard).

Add the triple satin ribbon bow along with the antique brad.

Use a white paint pen to add highlights to the grapes and a few pearls in the upper right hand corner to finish off the card.

Lovely card! I think you nailed the theme for Make My Monday with fruit and/or vegetables! Lots of detail. Nice use of embellishments and great job with the coloring.
