 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #286-Fantasy

This Weeks Sponsor

Aurora Wings

The winner will recieve $10 gift certificate!

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy FCCB DT!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project I've used the Cricut CTMH Artistry and Stretch Your Imagination cartridges to create this sweet fall card, along with an adorable image from our sponsor, Aurora Wings - Happy Thanksgiving!

I cut this lovely fall wreath from the Artistry cartridge and used some Distress Inks to sponge on some colour before layering it over the image that I coloured with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers - both alcohol based. I added some shiny Stickles for glittery fun!

I stamped an image from the Thanksgiving Eats stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps on a banner and then layered it over a second banner, adding some Distress Inks around the edges. The acorn border is from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and it really has a lot of awesome images! I used some pretty fall paper from CTMH that has been in my stash for a while, just waiting for the perfect occasion.

Inside, I stamped my Thanksgiving greeting and added one of the cut outs from the acorns on the front of the card. The back of the green paper was different, so I was able to turn the acorn 'hat' around for a different pattern.

I really love how this cute card turned out - and I love the little sprite image wearing the turkey costume!
