Give Thanks

7/12/2015 Update: "Give Thanks" was selected as a Design Team Pick at Can You Case It? Challenge #77.
This time of year we are so blessed to have such a wonderful bounty of colorful and delicious fruits and vegetables! My card was inspired by the sketch at Can You Case It? #77.
Three panels of DSP were cut and adhered to three panels of cardstock. They were backed with craft foam for dimension and adhered to a green card base. The trim was cut with a die from two pieces of coordinating DSP and adhered with a shadow effect one on top of the other then offset.

The sentiment was stamped with green ink on die cut ovals of DSP. The sentiment was popped up with craft foam. The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and a piece of die
cut DSP was added along the edge.
