***********Give Thanks JustRite Sketch 042

JRC_042 Sketch-Inchie Arts

Today is a day to to Give Thanks for a beautiful fall day.  So, I decided to use Just Rite Stamps from the Auturm Blessings Borders and Centers for this challenge.   First I took the sketch, turned it on its side, and flipped it to get a "mirror image sketch".  (why I don't know, I just did!)  Starting with a blank cardstock base and using stamps from Just Rite's Autumn Blessings Borders and Centers, Ribbon, Lace, Pearls, Fabric flowers, Stickles, Spellbinder dies, and bits of paper this card evolved.  I first covered the card with wide ribbon (pumpkin background).  May Arts Silk Ribbon and Lace provided the vertical lines and also the background upon which "Give Thanks" was stamped. Individual pearls were glued to the lace and the Give Thanks square was double mounted on coordinating paper.  5 Prima flowers with Stickles centers were arched on/above the square.  Pumpkins were gold embossed, colored with Copic markers, cut out and mounted on paper circle and then on a  Prima flower from the Crown Jewels collection.   Finally I worked to place both the square and circle in an appropriately pleasing position (slightly modified from the sketch)
