Thankful Gilded Autumn

With a new season just around the corner, I decided to use some Autumn paper left in my stash from last year to take on this sketch challenge from Atlantic Hearts #435.

I added a panel of the patterned paper to a brown card base, followed by a stitched vanilla rectangle, and then by a strip of gold metallic cardstock and another of the cinnamon and gold patterned paper. With foam tape, the die-cut, embossed scalloped circle was added to the card, followed by a vanilla banner topped off with a gold metallic die-cut sentiment. The inside was lined with a panel of vanilla cardstock and decorated with coordinating paper. I resisted the urge to add gems or sequins because there were none indicated in the sketch.

Be sure to join the challenge fun at
AHSC #435!
