S2GSC32 - Count Your Blessings!

It's time once again for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday sketch challenge. I hope you're all ready for some fun, fun, fun!!

Here's the sketch for this week, and the twist is to use Kraft cardstock or a kraft colored grocery bag in your design!
The image that I got to work with this week is a brand new digital image called "Blessings (SG 308)." I colored the image with my Lyra's and Gamsol - love the Gamsol Magic technique. I'm thrilled with the end result. I had a blast with this layout - as is somewhat deviant on my part, I flipped the sketch. I wanted the feel of the card to be like Grandma's kitchen table - I love the ecru lace, don't you? I used my Labels 8 Nestabilities to create a frame for the main image, and popped up the horn o' plenty with some dimensionals. The leaf charm and the acorn punch were last minute additions that I think add a fall feeling to my card, as well.

I know you all want to play along with us this week - you know you do, too. Well, all you have to do is create a card using this week's sketch (don't forget the twist!), and then click on the blinkie below - that'll take you right to Mr. Linky (as well as all the rules and regulations of playing along) where you need to upload a link to your project. Oh, and if you want some amazing and instant-gratification digi images - check out the Digi Images section in the Shirley's 2 Girls store. Cute stuff, I tell ya!! Oh, and not only do you have the chance to win a free stamp set of your choice, if you're the winner, you get a special blinkie for your blog! How cool is that?!! We'd so much love to have you play with us this week!!
