Give Thanks

Today's card showcases one of Stamplorations Typografia stamps called "Thankful." I love the way this poem mentions ordinary things for which to be thankful. Sometimes we overlook our everyday blessings or don't appreciate them till they're gone.

Supplies and Tools:
Dies: Dotted Ovals (Sizzix)
Embossing: Leaf Embossing Folder (The Paper Studio)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento), Aged Mahogany Distress Ink (Ranger)
Misc. Mulberry paper flowers, Liquid Pearls, Seam Binding
Stamps: Thankful (Stamplorations)
