So Grateful for The SCS Inspiration Challenge!

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I was able to create a few cards today, one of which is this one below. I used Stef's wonderful inspiration challenge #207 over at splitcoast. This week, we drew our inspiration from the fabulous Etsy shop of Aimoobaroo and her delightful fabic covered buttons! Specifically, I chose these lovely brocade fabric covered buttons for my card inspiration. The colors on these buttons are full of rich texture, really making them classic beauties. I used a deep rust cardstock against the ivory base for a contrast and also slid my tim holtz rich brown ink pad around every layer for more depth. These patterns are from some of last years Cosmo Cricket designs. This classic Thanksgiving set from Gina K. Designs is called So Grateful and was illustrated by the very talented and wonderful Rupa Shevde. I love every single set Rupa has ever created and this one is certainly no exception. The image was colored with a variety of SU! inks and blender pens and outlined with the cool grey no.1 Copic marker. The staked border along the bottom was done with some decorative scissors given to me by my great pal and fellow Clear Artistic Stamps designer, Wendi. She is such a sweetheart! :) thanks Wendi!

Thanks so much for visiting! have a wonderful Sunday and happy crafting
