Happy Thanksgiving - Papertrey Ink Favorites

Hi Friends!
I'm popping in today to share a card with a few of my favorite stamp sets.
Some old, some new - these beauties seem to permanently reside on my desk, so I finally thought I'd put them to use and share a little creation with you. And with Thanksgiving here, I also want to extend a big, thankful hug to you all. I am so (so!) thankful for each and every one of your visits, notes, and immense amount of support. Without you, this little place of mine wouldn't be the same. I dedicate this card to you! :) 

For the base of this card, I used Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Rectangle Stackables. It's one of my favorite go-to for bases. I love the different sizes, so it permanently stays on my desk. 

For the beautiful border, I used PTI's Stitch in Time stamp set, embossed in white over green paper.I layered it atop a soft peach cardstock, and used white cardstock as an insert to stamp a few little flowers and my sentiment. I added some sweet sequins and a bright red button, as well as some Nuvo Crystal drops in white

The flower cluster is from PTI's Rosie Posie stamp set, which is no longer available, but I think Gran's Garden would look just as lovely! I used colors of Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Vintage Jadeite, Green Parakeet, and Simply Chartreuse for the stamping. 

For the sweet, adorable birds that I simply can't put away, I used a combination of colors, and layers, playing with different gradients and ombre tones. I used Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, and Melon Berry for the pink bird, and Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry, and Pale Peony for the yellow bird. Aren't they the cutest!?

I wasn't sure if they would be a set I'd only use in the Spring...But I actually think they work beautifully for any time of year, especially Autumn. And I can't wait to give them a Winter twist too.

Thanks for visiting today friends!
