MCT September Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ thankful!



Woot Woot it's Day 3 of My Creative Time September Release Sneak Peeks!  Hasn't this week been AWESOME so far!  Well I promise you will not be disappointed with today's projects either.

Today is all about the belly band...do you even know what that is?  :)  Well it's a band that wraps around something that can usually slide off.


I thought it would be fun to add the belly band to my card, but I also wanted the card to look pretty without the belly band too.  So I decided to stamp the sentiment twice.

There was a lot of making to create the layers of leaves and acorns.  After the stamped images were dry, I water colored them.
