A Special Thank You

I was asked to make a special you are much appreciated thank you card for our PTO at school from the staff. I wanted to do something different from what everyone usually sees me make. I decided to use some of my most favorite stamps, my Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps. This picture doesn't show the brightness of the fall colors or all the sparkle on the wreath. After I stamped the wreath I dotted all around it with Platinum Stickles. Platinum is perfect for Fall because it doesn't give that yellowish sparkle like gold so it doesn't over power the colors on the image. I didn't have a ribbon that matched so I ran white ribbon over my Old Olive ink pad to dye it to match the Old Olive CS and ink. I decided to add the leaf pins for just that little extra embellishment. I am hoping it meets with every one's approval at school.

Luckily this card also meets some of the requirements for some challenges, so here they are
