MCT Designer Challenge

Welcome to the My Creative Time Designer Challenge!  Today Glora has challenged us to make a Thanksgiving themed project. I am READY to move on from Halloween projects to ones with pretty fall colors, so  I was excited for this challenge.  I started this card by layering some pretty patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods collection onto a black layer and my cream card base.  To make some grass, I trimmed some green cardstock with my Martha Stewart Icicle Punch.

This cute basket is a cut from the Silhouette Online Store.  I rotated the horizontal slats 90 degrees on my mat so that the wood would all cut along the grain.  The wood patterned paper is from Simple Stories Take a Hike collection..  The cute little sentiment is from My Creative Time's Postcard Add-Ons and is stamped on a circle made with MCT's Build a Banner Kit.  A little May Arts Natural Twine String added some extra interest.  I filled the basket with lots of cute leaves made with the leaf dies from Piles of Smiles and All Around Holidays.

This cute little sentiment is from the new Teeny Tag Holidays, stamped on tags made with the Teeny Tag Layering Dies.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see Glora's project and more Thanksgiving projects from Emma and the rest of the design team.  And don't forget to join in the challenge!  I can't wait to see your Thanksgiving creations!
