Thoughtful Fall

As we officially head into the holiday season, the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team is challenging all of our followers to be especially "Thankful and Thoughtful" during the month of November. We hope that you will link your creations with this theme in mind on the Dream It Up! blog using the Inlinkz tool. Our "thanks" to you is providing you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice, and a bonus stencil of our choosing could be yours for using Dreamweaver product(s) in your artwork. I'm posting this for you today:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Authentique™ 6x6 Bundle Thankful Collection
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Natural White
Green Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
ColorBox® Fluid Chalk Paintbox® Inks - Primary Pastels 
ColorBox® Fluid Chalk Petal Point® Inks - Autumn Pastels
Tim Holtz® Distress Ink - Tea Dye
May Arts Ribbon®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon® Adhesives
Scrapbook Adhesives® 3D Foam Squares

Here's what I did to create this card:

Tape stencil down onto natural white cover stock, using stencil brushes, ink design
Trim stenciled image to desired size
Stamp sentiment, die cut and stencil leaves over sentiment
Using a stiff flat brush, add detail to leaves on both images
Die cut mat for sentiment and adhere the two together
Create card base from green cardstock
Adhere main stenciled image to card base
Trim ribbon, attach to card
Using foam squares, attach matted sentiment to card base over the ribbon

By the way, the Dream Team is very THANKFUL when our followers are THOUGHTFUL enough to leave us a nice comment on our posts! Here's the "A" team lineup for this week, as well as our very special guest designer, Linda Neff!
