Shabby Tea Room Week #36

Hi there!
I am Guest Designer this week over in The Shabby Tea Room! This week's challenge is a color challenge with a thankful theme. Here's the photo inspiration:

I have to be honest, this one stumped me for a bit! Here is my card:

The creative juices started flowing when I spied this pretty little wreath in the new Around Christmastime set from Waltzingmouse. It is a simple thing, but one thing I am thankful for is the Autumn season. The colors and smells, the crisp chill in the air, woodsmoke drifting on the breeze.. I just love it. So that's what is wrapped all up in my card. I also used Off Beat Backgrounds and Musical Backgrounds on my card (I am also exceedingly thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of the WMS DT and work with Claire and her incredible stamps!).

Please make sure to head over to The Shabby Tea Room to see what the Design Team members have created. There's a great prize up for grabs this week, too, so be sure to try your hand at the challenge!

Have a beautiful day!
