Something To Be Thankful For

Hello!  Isn't this the best sentiment??  It's from Stampin' Up!'s You Brighten My Day.  (I used another cute sentiment from the set in a card on Wednesday; you can see it HERE.)  

I think the overall design has a Thanksgiving-ish feel to it, but I'd love to give it at any time of year. There truly is something to be thankful for every day.

In the background, you can see the Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up!, a new-ish purchase for me.  Then, I layered on bits of a salvaged store-bought greeting card (the orange, red, and glitter), and a fun tag.  The tag is from a friend, and it had some buttons attached to it, though not these, and also the satin ribbon.  I strategically covered the holes with vintage buttons and the sentiment, which had been colored with Distress Ink sprays by Ranger.  Had received a bunch of them for Christmas, and this is the first time I played with them.  

Very thankful YOU dropped by today!  Enjoy your weekend!

Oh, I love the colors on this! Nice salvage, and the wood grain background stamp is pretty amazing. Yes, a very good sentiment.
