Give Thanks

This card is for SCS Inspiration Challenge IC151 and Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC63. Thanks for the inspiration Stef and Beate!!!!

It has been been rainy here all day so getting a picture has been difficult. I may edit the photo later. I had this idea in my head about what I wanted to do with this card. Of course, I have had to modify my initial ideas to get to the finish product. I love the horizontal slat wall in the inspiration picture, so I tried to recreate that look with my fiskars and stylus.. In some places the score lines do not go all the way to the edge. Then I swiped the chocolate chip ink pad across to create some texture and depth as well as highlight my score lines. The center panel was stamped with stitched bg stamp in regal rose then run through the swiss dot cuttlebug. The tag is a stash of precut SU dies that found since I started a clean and purge task in my craftroom. I am trying to incorporate some stored stuff into my cardmaking.
