So Thankful For You

I just ran across  a new blog  by Jen Del Muro. Jen makes a sketch as a challenge for each month and I decided to give it a try and play along.
Here is her sketch:
And you can find her blog and sketch challenge for July here:
Now here is the card I came up with using Jen's sketch:
 The papers I used were all from scraps...even the scalloped circle with the sentiment was something that I had leftover from making Thanksgiving cards s couple of years ago. You might see it a few more times as I still have a couple  more left.
 For the horizontal border I just had to layer the scraps and trim a bit off the ends. I cut a v in the vertical strip and that was it. My borders were made.
 The scalloped circle is adhered with pop up dots and for some reason I had to put it up closer to the top of the card than what the sketch showed. The circle just did not looked balanced when placed lower on the border as it was on the sketch
I am happy with this card for two reasons. First it was made all from scraps except for the card base and secondly it is purple. I really do love purple but rarely use it in my cards.
Note to self: need to use purple more!
I hope you visit Jen's blog and give her sketch a try.
