Grateful for you

OK, how's this for a fallish card?? I've used a sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #38 as well as a challenge to make something focusing on being grateful for something. Now I can't find the challenge anywhere. Figures!

Anyway, the vase for the flowers was made with the large oval punch and then placing it in the Ornament punch to notch the top. I then ran it through the Big Shot with a texturz plate and sponged some ink on to accentuate the texture. I stamped the stems from Autumn Days then decided I needed some real stems so I walked around my house until I found some dried flowers and just snapped off a few pieces. They are glued in and add a neat dimension in person!

Stamped and cut out a few flowers, tied them on a corduroy button with some linen thread and called it done.
TFL! Hope you like it, and if you know which challenge I was trying to complete let me know. There are just too many out there to keep track of! Here's a closeup of the dimensional dried flowers in the vase.

See ya again soon!
