A Happy Thanksgiving Easel Card

I was so excited to try another easel card for the Try a New Technique challenge over on Split Coast this week. I just love this style card - you can see a Halloween one I made and my tutorial for making one on my posting here.

They are so easy to make and look so stunning don't you think?? I made mine a 4x4 this time (base 8x4, front 4x4). The stamps are a new set called Peace and Plenty by Waltzingmouse Stamps . I just love the mixed fonts on the sentiments in this set and all the lovely fall images.

I used Spellbinders Fancy tags for the sentiment and Labels Nine for the image. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the leaves and acorn tops for a little sparkle. I think you can just see a little of the sparkle on the first picture - it's really shimmery IRL!

As always I am thankful that you came by to visit me!
