SOS Challenge #77

Hello friends!  It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Shopping Our Stash.

This week we have an easy challenge for you, we would like to see your "Thank You" cards or a Thanksgiving card or project.

I found a great idea on Pinterest (the link didn't take me to a post for this card, sorry) that uses scraps.  I decided to pull from my very large collection of scraps for this card!
 This beautiful DP is from K&Co.  I mounted the strips on a matte of green after I embossed them with my Swiss dot embossing folder.  The white strips were in my scrap bag.  The sentiment is an old one from SU, the swirl is one of my favorites from Inkadinkadoo.  I added some ribbon from my stash and a small butterfly bead from my daughter's stash (which lives in my studio so I use it freely!).
 I repeated the sketch on the inside for the writing panel.
The base for the card is also from my stash.  It's a pre-scored card with matching envelope.  I bought a package a year ago and have finally started using them!

Be sure to stop by all the SOS team blogs and see what they have for you, then dig in your stash and join us this week!  My whole card is stash which proves you can make a very pretty card with stuff you might otherwise throw away!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Amusing Challenges - Thank You
Challenges for Everybody - Anything Goes
Come and Get it Challenges - Flourishes & Swirls
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - With Thanks
Pile It On - Let's Be Thankful

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
