Just Us Girls #264 - Photo Week

This week at Just Us Girls it's Photo Week and Maria has chosen a beautiful Fall photo for our inspiration.

Here's my card

There is so much inspiration in this photo.  I took mine from the basket, leaves and sunflowers and created a card for Thanksgiving.  I love the warm, vibrant colors in the paper and the leaf pattern was an added bonus.  The basket stamp is from Gina K. Designs and is called Holiday Basket.  It comes with several different flower arrangements, and I chose the beautiful sunflowers.  Sunflowers and fall just seem to go together.  The lacy border on the basket was made using GKD Lacy Borders stamp set and embossing with Seafoam White embossing powder.

The Recipe:

Gina K. Designs Holiday Basket
GKD Lacy Borders
GKD Grateful Heart patterned paper
GKD Pure Luxury Ivory & Honey Mustard CS
Ranger Seafoam White embossing powder
Offray Orange ribbon
Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders Two

I'm, also, linking this card to The Card Concept challenge.  My style is Clean and Layered.
