We are THANKFUL at For Fun

This week at FOR FUN CHALLENGES we have a THANK YOU theme. As today is Thanksgiving in the USA we felt it was fitting to create thank yous as our theme this week.

We have the fabulous Paper Shelter as our sponsors, and my card has been created using one of their adorable images.

I embossed a piece of white card with a snowflakes design, and matted/layered it with navy cardstock...I love using dark colours to make everything 'pop' out at you. The main image is attached using foam tape for a 3D effect. I tied some navy funky fibres down the side, added a few tiny blue gems, a couple of die cut snowflakes (Quickutz) and a computer generated sentiment (using 'Almonte Snow' font) to complete. Inside the card the sentiment continues....'Snow' Much!

I know how busy this time of year is for everyone, but I am confident that time spent on a 'thank you' card will be time well spent, as we ALL have something/someone in our lives we are thankful for, and now is a perfect time to let them know :D

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Hope to see you over at FOR FUN CHALLENGES!
