Simon Says......Thanks/Thanksgiving

Welcome to our new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

This week we want to see cards with a Thanks or Thanksgiving theme.  The team is featuring Hero Arts products.

supplies: Cream, kraft, Schoolhouse Red, Lipstick Red, Orange Peel, Sunshine, and other warm-toned cardstock, Craft Consortium Wood Textures patterned paper, Hero Arts Envelope Accessories leaf sprig and Nesting Rectangles die,  Simon Thanks Sentiment Strip, inked with antique linen distress ink, natural twine, maroon sprinkle

I have used this little leaf sprig die more times than I could count, but I don't think I've ever used it for a fall wreath before.  I chose lots of fall-colored cardstock to cut it from, then formed the sprigs into a wreath, securing each sprig only at its base so I could lift the ends of each up for some dimension.  The sentiment sprig was too stark in white, so I sponged on some antique linen distress ink to match the card base..  

Now it's your turn!  We have a $25.00 gift certificate 

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
