Make It Monday #263 & Colour Throwdown #413

Today, we're off to my mom's to celebrate Thanksgiving with her.
Before we go, however, I wanted to share the card that I made for her,


Here's my card:


I started with a background of patterned paper and layered some
KIS: Frames diecuts over top.
I added some pre-printed Colour Pop: Autumn diecuts and made the orange
leaves on my own, using the kit.


I diecut the Bountiful die twice and stacked them together, blending orange ink
onto the top one before adhering it to my card.
I stamped the "blessings" (also using Colour Pop: Autumn)
in enchanted evening ink.

Thanks for looking!
