Thankful - PTI November Blog Hop

After all the family gathering and over-eating of Thanksgiving (!!)  I'm thankful today to be joining in with the November Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

Nicole has given us this photo as inspiration:
I was inspired by the centerpiece, the plaid napkin and carpet!
The foliage is from Meadow Greens (stamps and dies), the thankful is from Counting my Blessings die set and the orange striped paper is from Textstyle Autumn Abundance.
I layered two of the greens on foam dots.  I cut out thankful from gold card and twice out of white card and layered them together - and then layered them over the greens with foam dots.

I'm off to Nicole's blog to see how everyone else interpreted this lovely photo!

Stamps:  Meadow Greens - PTI
Paper:  white, Vintage Cream, Vintage Cream Linen - PTI, woodgrain from Paperstash/Materialize - Tim Holtz/Idea-ology, gold card - Michaels.
Ink:  New Leaf, Olive Twist - PTI
Accessories:  Counting My Blessings Die set and Meadow Greens Die set - PTI, foam dots.

This is so lovely, we think alike as I used the thankful die as well. I have to admit it is a favourite of mine and I have now made a few cards with it.
