What a gorgeous day we are having here in North Carolina! I just love this time of year with the heat of summer over and the warm autumn days beginning.  The sky is crystal clear Carolina Blue today. It is perfect for walking and enjoying the freshness that comes after the heat is gone and some rain clears up the air.  Soon the leaves will be changing colors… I can’t wait for that!

Well today I am sharing my card that I created for this week’s challenge at The Shabby Tea Room: Week #81- Chevrons. The challenge is to create a card or project using BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, CREAM AND BROWN WITH CHEVRONS!

This is another one of my Thanksgiving cards and on this one I decided to quill a fall flower design in Orange, yellow, brown and green.  I used my Spellbinders Labels Four to design a mat for the flowers.  Cut in 3 sizes, the largest is decorated in my now very used Pumpkin Border Set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I do love the detail in this set.  The middle size is a metallic orange and the small size is a gorgeous blue from my Mariposa matstack.

I incorporated chevrons into the design by using ric-rac in green, orange, cream and blue. I used the Spellbinders Labels Four and a scrap of the same Mariposa paper to make the sentiment tag. The Happy Thanksgiving is a block stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  Three pumpkin brads add another touch of Thanksgiving to the card.

The card is finished off with a collared grosgrain bow in cream color and embellished with a gold pearl.  Some paper punching and more gold pearls complete the card.

So there we have a Thanksgiving card that manages to use blue and chevrons. What do you think? 

Thanks for stopping by today. Please check in tomorrow for another beautiful Thanksgiving card!
