Petaloo: Count My Blessings

Hi there, this is Eva here with some Thanksgiving creations using our newest gorgeous Botanica collection flowers
My first project is a card.  I love card making so my brain always goes there first...LOL.  Anyway, to create this card I used Authentique's Seasons: Autumn collection.




I also used a pretty Spellbinders die on this called Flourish Trim to fram my sentiment label.  As you can see our Botanica flower bloom in Orange tone along with the pretty leaves that come in the packaging.




I also used the pretty Berry Clusters in Burgundy color, a whole bunch as it just fit my design perfect.




Here is another look of my card, which as a final touch I added some Gesso to to soften it up.




My next project is a Thanksgiving Give Thanks Jar.  I purchased a jar and altered it by wrapping burlap around it, and added a pretty white doily on top of that, than added the sentiment label once again using the Authentique Autum Collection and started adding my flowers.  I used the Botanica Blooms and Botanica Minis.




As a final touch I added a pretty May Arts ribbon around it, which coordinated perfect with the colors of the flowers.





I am thinking this jar would be fun to use at Thankgiving as we can put in a list of things what we are grateful for, or come to think of it, it could be really used any day, not just around Thanksgiving.  

Hope you enjoyed my creations.  Here is one more look of them together.
