Thanksgiving Challenge card

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for Joan's Thanksgiving Challenge. Here are the details:

1. Create a Thanks giving card
2. Use something Fallish such as Leaves, Pumpkins or Indian Corn (if you don't have a stamp use a leaf from your tree.
3. The color Green.

4. Some kind of swirl or vine.

I used Heartfelt Open Falling Leaves stamps and Heartfelt Spellbinders dies for the leaves (that I purchased from Joan's store) on this card. I used my copic airbrush to color the paper, stamped the leaves and then used the dies to cut them out in my Big Shot die cutting machine. I used Whiff of Joy's Willow for the main image.

Don't ya just love the swirly pearls? They are from ZVA and to tell you the truth, I don't remember where I bought them! I've had them for awhile and this challenge was just the perfect time to use them.

I stamped and cut out a lot of extra leaves. I airbrushed a whole 8 1/2 x 11 paper and stamped the whole thing with the leaves. I just love the way they turned out.

Nancy, oh my goodness this is absolutely stunning. Did you use the Copic Markers to air brush> I would love to see how you did that.
I totally love everything about it.

Thanks so much for playing in Joan's Gardens #24 Weekly Challenge. Your card is awesome!

Nancy this is a gorgeous card. I love the way you colored the HFC leaves. I guess I need to get an airbrush! Happy Thanksgiving


Your card is lovely. Such perfection on those leaves! Well done!

Dear Nancy, occasionally I landed on your blog and didn't want to go without writing you a word. I very like the artwork you do and am sure to take a look again from time to time.
Hugs, Karina
