Give Thanks - A Paper Cupcakes Challenge

Today I was met with the sad news of a friends passing and so today's Paper Cupcakes Challenge over on the There's Magic in the Air Challenge Blog to Give Thanks really strikes a cord.  There are many things in life we should be grateful for, and one is our good health, our family and friends.  My deepest sympathy goes out to my dear friend Toni and all her family.

This week the challenge has been set by Gloria and she would like to see you incorporate the colours Brown, Orange and Yellow into your projects as well as wording or images representative of 'Giving Thanks'.



For my card I chose the Autumn Splendor Image from Paper Cupcakes and simply used the word "Thanks" as my sentiment.  I coloured my image with Tria Markers and also added some Yellow Viva Decor Pearl Pen to emboss the sunflower and Viva Emerald Glitter Liner to highlight the leaves and the stem of the pumpkin.

I do hope you can play along with the challenge this week.  Don't forget for all the details and for some wonderful inspiration from the Paper Cupcakes Design Team be sure to head over to the "There's Magic In the Air" Blog.

We do sometimes forget that our lives have many things to be greatful for on a daily basis Danie.
Our loved ones are a case in point for before we know they can be gone.
Your card is terrific. I love how you have used the gold Viva Pearl pen - now that's something interesting, particularly the rich colour!
What a cute bird too! See you sadly all too soon my friend.
