Stampin Up Give Thanks for all Things with Atlantic Hearts Sketch

Hello and welcome to November. It is now time to turn our attention from the festivities of Halloween to giving thanks for our blessings.  I have created a thankful card with the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  This seemingly simple design involved a lot of die cutting.  The stripe in the middle is my first attempt at a Tim Holtz colorized die.  

Here's the sketch.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I stamped and embossed then die cut on a Spellbinders oval and found the coordinating lacey oval die to frame it.

Details of my colorized die cuts..

So many tiny layers but in the end I feel they are designed to make as few pieces as possible to get exquisite detail.

A quick final note.  I woke up early this morning and went to watch some of the eclipse.  I meditated on the state of our country and I sent blessings to all for the best possible outcome for our democracy today.
