Today, the Dirty Dozen Alumni on SCS were challenged to make a Fall themed project with a heart on it.
Here are the requirements:
Challenge Focus: Create a thankful card or gift, Thanksgiving table place card or treat holder, or Thanksgiving home decor item.
Required Element: At least one heart on your project.
Restricted Element: Nothing
Keyword: DCTH1108 (for SCS uploading)
I realize this is an odd looking card. There is a reason for the *uncolored* portion of this image. I decided to spotlight the fruit and vegetables in the center of this Cornucopia (Northwoods) in order to represent all of my blessings.
There are so many out there who have very little food, no shelter, estranged family members, poor health...the list could go on and on. Thus the spotlight. I thought the heart was a great idea that Sharon required. Mine is full of thankfulness, yet hurts for those who are suffering right now. I added the flower in the top corner to represent hope. To me flowers represent life and remind me that we are to bloom where we are planted. Sorry for all the symbolism, but that's how this card came about.
The heart and flower are a cuttlebug diecut.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a blessed week!!
