Give Thanks!

This week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts is to make a Thanksgiving or "thankful" card, layout, or altered item, which includes a scripture verse. I have used the "Give Thanks" set by Our Daily Bread designs, along with SEI Moonrise designer paper and crocheted lace by May Arts, tied with a Bow Easy. The corners of the designer paper were rounded with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch. Although camera shy, there are also about six layers of "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist to give it a nice shimmer.
Along with Bible Verse Thursday, I have also incorporated the following challenges in the making of this card:
Drunken Stampers: Stitching ( I used faux stitching);
Crazy Challenge: Thank you or Thanksgiving;
Creative Card Crew: Give Thanks;
ABC Challenge: H= Holidays;
For Fun Challenges: Thankful;
Gingersnap Creations: Stitching;
Sisterhood of Crafters: Thankful;
Aud Sentiments Challenge: Thanksgiving/thankful;
AI Factory: die cuts or punches;
Splitcoast's Ways To Use It: Basically Beautiful Brown;
Twisted Thursday: Thanks and use leaves (leaves are in the designer paper and in the stamped image);
Raise The Bar: Grateful;
Stamp Something: Thanks.

Here is a photo of "my little helper", my 19 year old "Kitty". She loves sleeping in this flimsy box in my craft room, while her padded bed is right next to it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a very blessed day!!!

This is gorgeous, Angella! The stitching is just fabulous (it looks so real!), and the papers and lace are lovely. Thanks for joining the Drunken Stampers!

What a beautiful card! Love the color combo, beautiful layout and the crocheted lace looks amazing. Also love the details you added to the Designer Paper corners and then the rounded corners.
Your cat is soooo cute! My little Thomas and Fussy do the same thing, they just love sleeping on top of cardboard boxes and especially like to crawl into the smallest of boxes. (I am a new cat owner so everything they do amazes me!)

Thanks so much for sharing your work with us at stamp something, I hope you'll join us again for our next challenge in two weeks!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Beautiful card. I love the color theme. Great sentiment too.
Love the photo of your cat in the filmsy box. Pets are so funny sometimes. We used to have a dog that slept with his feet in the air.

What a beautiful and elegant card - the stitching is so pretty! Thanks for playing along at Gingersnap! (And my kitties are the same way - give them a box to sleep in and a milk jug lid to play with and they are content - no need to spend any $$$, LOL!)
