Gratitude

Back again....
this time for two challenges:

City Crafter Challenge Blog          and                         Freshly Made Sketches

Here is what I created when I combined the two...


The large background pattern paper is from K & Company, the three tiny square papers are from My Mind's Eye. Cardstock is from Bazzill and Recollections. The twine and button are from Papertrey ink.
The border punch is Martha Stewart. I used Spellbinders square die to cut the squares.
The floral stamp is Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I used memories black ink and frayed burlap distress ink. Gems and pearls are from Michaels.
That's it for now...thanks for stopping by!
