The First Thanksgiving


Greetings!  Just a card to share with you today for the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie where the theme is "Thanksgiving!"  I really enjoyed making this card.  I just love vintage images of Thanksgiving and these beauties are from Gecko Galz.  I matted the images and layered them over a doily that I colored with Tea Dye Distress Stain.  The corners were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink using a stamp included with a purchase of Gelatos.  Simple embellishments include a scrap of vintage lace and a seam binding bow, also dyed with Tea Dye Distress Stain.  Thanks for stopping by today! Hugs, Yvonne

there is such warmth in your card Yvonne. The colours are all perfect together and the staining of the doily was a good idea that blend so well. Take care, Sandie x
