A time to give thanks

Good morning my friends, another fortnight has flown past and it's time for a new challenge over at Creative Moments..  We have two lovely sponsors this time...Digistamps4joy and Decosses Dynamite Doodles. The optional theme for this challenge is 'Thanksgiving'. I live in the UK and we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here so I opted to make a 'Thank you' card instead, can never have too many of these! I used my own stamp, a beautiful Lavinia fairy one, and kept the design very simple. First I stamped my fairies across a square of pretty DP that looks like a shaded inky background and  adhered it onto a black card base.Then I cut two corners off another identical piece of DP and stamped the tree on one and the sentiment on the other, matted both corners onto triangles of black cardstock, then mounted them in place using foam pads. Quick and easy ...but I really like it!
For more inspiration please check out the Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT have created.
Thanks for visiting
have a lovely day
