The scene turned out pretty well, I thought, pretty much as I remembered it. Then came the nerve-wracking part - adding the sentiment. I really didn't want the sentiment on a banner or another layer of any type, but which color would be best? After I held swatches of all my blues against the sponged background and made a decision, what if I stamped it badly? Aagh - I almost gave up and left it off entirely - too nerve-wracking! Without indicating gratitude, it wouldn't qualify at One Layer Simplicity, or Paper Craft Crew for their "give thanks" theme, or Shopping Our Stash for their "thanks" theme. I was hoping to play along at all three sites, and I'll need a thank you card for a Stampin' Up!® order that's scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so I braved up and went for it - yay me! I think I'm kinda in love with the Six Sayings stamp set, especially this Thankful sentiment.
