Grateful For You - CTD #120 and MFT WSC

Is everyone here in the US ready for Thanksgiving? Tomorrow's turkey day so if you're not, time's running out! I have a Thanksgiving card for you today, using both the Color Throwdown colors and the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge: Thankful for...or Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for many things, not the least of which is the many friendships I've developed through my stamping hobby. Sending Happy Thanksgiving wishes to all my US peeps!

Now, on the the challenges. Danielle picked these colors and I love them!


I couldn't resist bringing out my Basic Grey Indian Summer paper for one last card of the season. I didn't use Old Olive--Kiwi Kiss seems to go better with it so I went with that.


My layout is very simple--shows off those gorgeous papers better :) The sentiment frame was stamped with the Polka Dot Greetings frame and cut out with the matching die, and the sentiment itself is from Framed Greetings.


Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD120 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week.
