i {heart} papers Challenge

For the first ever i {heart} papers Design Team Challenge, we are focusing on "Giving Thanks" in honor of the upcoming holiday. I use Thank You cards all year (although not as often as I should), but this one is done in autumnal colors, using supplies available at i {heart} papers (of course).

If the layout of this card looks familiar, it's because it's the same layout as the card I showed a few days ago. It takes full advantage of large-scale printed papers that card makers might ordinarily shy away from. This gorgeous paper is called Windsor by s.e.i., and there's a matching stamp set that I used for the elegant sentiment and to stamp a shadow design on the background cardstock.

Be sure to check out my teammates' blogs:
