Thanks and Gratitude Stampers Showcase Blog Hop

Good morning friends! How are you this fine Monday morning?  It's the last Monday of the month and that means it's time, once again, for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop! YAYAYA!!! This month's theme is Thanks and Gratitude.  It's always nice to feel appreciated, and it's even nicer when you have the ability to show someone how much you appreciate them. Endorphines release and good feelings are had by all! :-D 

I chose to use the New Horizons product Collection for my project because it's so beautiful and makes me feel good inside.  This card reminds me of being out in the country, just enjoying the beauty that God created. 

The New Horizons 6x6" Designer Series Paper really is the star of the show for this card.  I love the incredible watercolor layouts and this particular one did most of the work for me!

I started out with a Basic White Card base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"), then added a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" layer of Evening Evergreen Cardstock. I did a little stamping on the 4" x 5 1/4" DSP layer before attaching it to the card front. 

To get a bit of depth and dimension to my card, I die cut some Garden Green grass pieces and used a blending brush to color over them. This REALLY gives you some nice texture. You can see the difference between the top and bottom pieces here. 

I did the same with the fence panels.  What a HUGE difference it makes!

The last element to the card is the sentiment strip.  I stamped the sentiment on a 1/2" scrap strip of Basic White Cardstock and trimmed each end at an angle. I don't know about you, but I always have tons of these 1/2" strips leftover from cutting my card mats. :-) It's a terrific way to use them up!

I hope you enjoyed my project, and I hope you'll hop around to the other blogs as well! You'll find some fabulous inspiration along the way! ENJOY!!
