Simon Says ,,,,, Thanksgiving/ Thank You

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for our Thinking of You/ Sympathy Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


Thanksgiving will be celebrated on the 22nd November in the USA and for those of us who don't celebrate we can make a Thank You card / creation ,,, we always need some of those handy eh :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I made a really CAS card this week using some products that were in the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit, ie Basic Grey Serenade papers and button and Neenah Desert Storm card for the base. I will link all products used at the bottom of this post :-)

 Close Up :) 
I used the black card (which is in the kit) to make the shadow for the die cut, makes it more defined :-)

 I saw a card made using hexagons  that were arranged in a similar style a while ago and didn't make a not of where I saw it, but it stuck in my mind when I was making this, if anyone knows where it could be could you please let me know so that I can give proper credit. Thanks xx

Our lovely Designer in the Spotlight, Barb, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the Simon says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

Gorgeous card! I LOVE the definition the black cardstock gives the flowers. At first it made me think you had die cut the flowers through the card front and used the negative space. :)

I love the subtle colour palette of this card. The hexagons create a beautiful pattern. Great idea to create the shadow for the flower. It really gives it much more impact. Thanks for joining our CAS challenge at Craft Your Passion. I hope you'll join us again next week.
