Thank You

Happy Memorial Weekend!

I am sharing a Thank You card today.  I guess it's part of the Memorial Day spirits - I am grateful for those who fought for us selflessly so we can enjoy everything we are enjoying.

For this card, I first heat embossed the tall wheat in green, then applied three shades of orange to the background.  I was trying to create a scene of sunset, but I guess I've edited the lighting of the picture a bit too much so it is rather light here.

I've used the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

Did you know that there are quite a few good deals for card-making or scrapbooking supplies?  I am going to check them out!

My card is entering the following challenges:
613 Avenue - Anything Goes
Amusing Challenge - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
