Truely Thankful for You with SSINK

Good morning!  Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration we are sharing projects created just for our followers!  We truly appreciate and are thankful for following us each day with your posts, each week with our fun challenges and for leaving us those kind comments that keep our design team members INKspired to keep creating!
I stepped away this time from the traditional Fall colors that most people thank of when its time to think of being Thankful cause it connect it with Thanksgiving and Fall colors or oranges, browns, reds and greens.  Nope this time, I stepped outside the box and went with a bit softer color choice.  Above was my color inkspiration.

Ok, not only did I step away from the fall thankful colors, I also stepped away from traditional fall thankful images of pumpkins, leaves and such and went with feathers.  Yep, I just love the Four Feathers stamp set.  I first stamped the feather down the side of my crumb cake layer in versa mark ink and heat embossed with gold powder.  I also stamped and cut out three feather on white cardstock and embossed with gold powder.  I then took my spongers and inked each feather with my colors of night of navy, crisp cantaloupe and blackberry bliss.

I love burlap but with this card I wanted a softer touch so I broke out my finger dauber and got inky.  I sponged on whisper white craft ink on top of my burlap ribbon.  It created the perfect touch next to the venetian crochet trim.  The perfect added touch was the crisp cantaloupe twine and the added gold sequins.
Supplies Used
 Cardstock ~ crumb cake
Ink ~ whisper white, versa mark
Stamp set ~ four feathers
Misc. ~ gold embossing powder, gold sequins, crisp cantaloupe twine, burlap ribbon, venetian crochet trim ribbon, glue dots, red line tape
I hope you have enjoyed my card creations.  Again I thank you so much for being a follower of me over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration.  Don't forget to leave some "love" and go see what the others have created for you!
