Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Thanks/Thanksgiving

I have been so excited to show my card for this week's Simon Says Stamps Challenge as it is the first one I made with the new Autumn kit from Magnolia and with all my DT work I haven't had chance to use any of the other images yet. I made it as soon as they arrived last Thursday and have had to wait all this time to share it!! Our challenge this week is Thanks/Thanksgiving and we are joined by a lovely lady, Vera who is collecting cards for the caring card drive to send Thanksgiving cards to the elderly who are on their own or in care, such a lovely idea! As always we are sponsored by Heidi who is offering a $25 certificate to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store!!

I'm so in love with my card today, and that doesn't happen all that often. I love these papers by Cosmo Cricket. I've distressed them with walnut stain distress ink and stickles. I've used the gorgeous sketch at Truly Scrumptious for my card.

Here she is, my gorgeous new Tilda. Love the ricrac on her hat and top don't you!?!? I've coloured her with copics and added a touch of stickles around her feet.

The absolutely gorgeous flower is of course by Prima - who else could make such a gorgeous flower?? I've added a button from Basic Grey and I've stamped "Thankful" from Whiff of Joy onto a scrap of the paper as a tag.

I have no idea where I got the spotty ribbon, it has been in my drawer for over a year! The oh so cute tiny button is from Basic Grey, I love these smallest ones the best, alas this is my last brown one :(.

I hope I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamp. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of my teamies gorgeous creations! Thanks for looking! x
