CTD #269- So Thankful!!

Happy Wednesday morn'!! I'm the hostest with the mostest over on the Color Throwdown challenge this week. We're starting the US Thanksgiving off a little early!! I'm ready for a little holiday- good food {will be busy cooking everyone's favorites} AND a 4 day WE!!

Here's the colors I chose along with an early celebration pic!!



The layout is the Cardabilities sketch this week. I die cut several banners from my trusty MFT Flag Stax dies and proceeded to stamp tone on tone with various images.... MFT LJD Darling Dots, Verve chevrons from Borderline, and the argyle from PTI Argyle. The sprigs were die cut with Verve's Leafy Sprigs and stamped with the matching image. As well, the flowers were die cut with Verve's Floral Circles and stamped with a flower image from Bloom & Grow. Added some twine and a Verve sentiment stamped on one of the dies from Verve's Banner Bundle.
