Give thanks

After discovering the fabulous herringbone technique, I knew my stamp club ladies would love it. After all, what self-respecting stamper doesn't look for every conceivable way to utilize the growing pile of scraps we seem to accumulate?? I tried several variations and ended up with this Thanksgiving Day card that is reminiscent of an old quilt. I love the Bella Bleu designer series paper for this technique - it has such a nice charming vibe. I have to say this is one of my favorite cards I've made in a long time!

Thanks for stopping by!
