H2H - An Attitude of Gratitude

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

It's all about gratitude this week - everyone has something for which to be thankful. Gratitude really is something that we should practice every single day because we are so very fortunate to live in a part of the world where there isn't war or other life threatening events happening day in and day out. In Canada, we celebrate Remembrance Day on November 11. It is a day to remember our veterans and those whose lives were lost in wars. It is such an important day...

I chose to create a card that isn't autumn related (considering it is autumn) but just a 
"thankful" card.

The trees were stamped (one was masked) using two colours - Evergreen and Green Apple. Some of them were stamped in second generation to give a lighter appearance. This card is from a pattern in the Make It From Your Heart - Vol. 4 book. It came together so easily after the trees were finished. A narrow ribbon and a few gold gems were added... done! 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the theme "An Attitude of Gratitude". 
You have until the end of November to link up your project.
We can’t wait to see what you create!

I love how you used masking and layers of different greens to create your own little forest. Very nice!
