Thankful somethings

Happy Friday!!

This week our challenge at stamp something is called

thankful somethings.

For my card I used one of my own digistamps, little susie squirrel with acorn, from
Digital Stamp Oasis.

The image has been printed on couture 80lb card stock and then colored with derwent coloursoft and baby oil. I cut it out using a circle nestabilities shape. Edges were sponged using some bashful blue ink.

I embellished with some brown grosgrain ribbon, brads and punched out butterflies using a martha stewart punch. Tiny sticky pearls and stickles glitter were added to the butterflies.
The sentiment is from Stampin up.

I am also entering my card to these challenges
Our generous sponsor this week is Simon Says stamps and a wonderful prize is up for grabs, as usual! I hope you'll all join in.

Have a GREAT weekend!
Ellie.
