My favorite season!

Yes, fall is coming…and with that is Thanksgiving!  Yum!  Today’s Flourishes set is all about thanks!  A Season of Thanks that is!

I love all of the images in this set, but this one might be my favorite.  There’s just something about Indian corn that makes me smile!  It was such a classic decoration that was always on my grandparents front door for the fall holidays and not one that I find many people using today.  I love the warm fuzzy feeling that it gives me.  I can’t wait to buy it and put it on my front door!

It’s stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copics.  I really enjoyed coloring this image!  I love bittersweet vine and it looks so pretty with the corn.  There was some growing wild around the corner from me, but with a big tree that came down in the hurricane it looks like it took the vine with it.   I’m thinking that I should be seeing it by now, but I’ll keep looking and hoping!
I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Classic Scallop Oval LG to cut out the image and the mat.  I used the Ribbon Banner for the sentiment.  The sentiment is actually convex (curving down) but I placed it on the acrylic block reversing the curve so that it would fit nicely into the banner that I wanted to use.    My ribbon is May Arts crocheted trimmed velvet ribbon and it is a perfect companion to this warm fall image and the paper from the Memory Box Twiggy pack.   A few simple embellishments were adhesive gems and a button and rustic twine.  Voila!
Sumptuous samples abound on the blogs below!
