November is the month to celebrate, and be thankful with family and loved ones. What better way to share how thankful we are than with a card? This time at Dies R Us we invite you to join our Thankful challenge. For your inspiration I made a Fall themed card, with lots of die cuts.

The die cut card base sure add lots of detail to the card, but that of course wasn’t enough. I layered one side of the card’s front with part of a doily die cut and wrought iron die cut. I added die cut leaves, jute twine, and some handmade flowers that I colored with different inks and Inka Gold (see how to here). To finish my design I added pearls, crystals and of course a little tag with a Thanks a Bunch sentiment.
