SSSC125 - Let Us Be Grateful...

It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #125.  For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Garden Variety along with the coordinating dies and the set Inside & Out Thank You.  As you can see I ended up flipping Karen's sketch only because I wanted to use the combination of the Garden Variety set along with the sentiment I picked out from the Inside & Out Thank You and the only way I could get it to work was to flip it.  This "Let us be Grateful" sentiment is one of my favorites, I actually have a Mary Engelbreit (love her work) print in my laundry room with this sentiment on it (see photo below) and thought it would work well with the GV images.
Supplies: Garden Variety with dies, Inside & Out Thank You - PTI, My Mind's Eye Stella Rose DP, Circle Nesties, SU flower punch, Brad, MS Picket Fence punch, Linen Thread, Foam tape.  Colors: Early Espresso, Really Rust, Taken with Teal, Old Olive.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

I loved the layout of the watering can & gardening tools. The twine & little flower are great finishing touches. These colors remind me of fall which is just around the corner.
