Giving Thanks: October Card Kit

Hi Everyone!

Just popping in quickly today to share a card I made using my Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit. So many adorable papers and fun items in this kit. I can't wait to do lots more with this kit. A couple of minor notes about this card. First, the picture is horrible...and I apologize for that. I just haven't quite perfected the photography skills yet. Also, I was hoping to be able to take a picture of the card standing up, so that you can see it's actually a window card. The tree image sits in the inside of the card with the window frame around around it on the front of the card. I stamped the tree using ColorBox Chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, and the leaves on the tree with Stampin Up! Old Olive and Certainly Celery. I used a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink in the background of the image just to cut down on the bright white background. I colored the chipboard banner piece with the acrylic paint included in the kit. I stamped the sentiment in the Chestnut Roan ink and the "for you" underneath in Tumbled Glass. I used distress markers for the birds before cutting them out and adhering them to the tree. I am linking this card to the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Challenge and a few others as well, which I've listed at the end of the post.
That's all for me today. Thanks so much for visiting with me. Have a great weekend! Until next time....
