Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try! Another awesome sketch from Jen!!

For my card today, I used the GORGEOUS Bountiful Blessings set being released tonight from There She Goes! This set has STUNNING images that are a DREAM to color!!! I chose to work with the wreath as it was perfect for today's sketch.

I stamped the wreath in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored it with Copic Markers. I cut it out and embossed it using Circle Nestabilities which I then layered over Lacey Circles Nestabilities.

The patterned paper is all from Restoration by Crate Paper (just one of my many new paper obsessions), and I embossed the background panels with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

I added just a touch of paper piercing (I used to pierce every single layer and element on my cards...remember those days?) and added a sentiment panel using the "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment from Bountiful Blessings. An orange gem in each corner finished things off!!

Make sure you head on over and visit my SFYTT sisters for today's SFYTT!
