Die-Namites November Challenge and Inspiration

Hello, Crafty Friends!!
Thanksgiving will be here next week!! Where is the time going?? I love the holiday season!! I know you're suppose to be grateful and show appreciation to friends and loved ones everyday, but let's face it, sometimes life just gets in the way!!!

That's why the holidays are so important! This is a BIG reminder to say "hey, let's make an extra effort to tell (insert name) that I love and appreciate them"!

Sometimes it's as simple as making a handmade card... 

Today's project  I have a simple, yet elegant, Thankgiving themed card.

I created this for Die-Namites monthly inspirational challenge... you can find out more about it here!
 I will be sending this card to a dear family friend back home in Hawaii who I alwys carry near and dear in my heart.

Here's a look at this month's inspirational photo...

I fell in love with the reflective properties in the background and used that as inspiration and my starting point.

I used Die-Namites Heart Branch as my focal  point.

I cut the branches using gold foil cardstock and then airbrushed the bottom half with an orange marker and my ebrush then bundle them together ant tied a bow around them.

I love how bundling them made them look like stalks of wheat.

I added a quadruple looped bow and topped it with flowers for the center.
Then sprinkled each center with seed beads.

Then simply added my bouquet onto a burlap matted card front.

Giving this card a CAS design.

I hope you enjoyed this project and it inspires you to do two things...

1) Not to forget to let you friends and family how much you appreciate them everyday
