Sangria Fall Leaves Thanksgiving Card

At Thanksgiving time we think of all the many blessings we have and thank God and our friends and family. I've become determined to give thanks more, even for the small things that might seem insignificant to some. There are times I'm amazed at the way some circumstance works out, knowing that God had a hand in it.  I find myself saying, "Wow! Thank you, Lord! I know you did this!" The inside of my card has a scripture from Word Art Wednesday from November 19, 2014. It's a lovely reminder that we should give thanks and praise to God.

I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch and the leaves and luscious fall colors in this photo from Craftin' Desert Divas:

This card uses the leaves from the CTMH  "Fallen Leaves" stamp set.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder using "Thankful Heart."

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Fan-tastic Tuesday #107 - anything goes (square/rectangle) with twist - autumn colors

Wonderful Fall Theme card. I love the scripture inside! So delighted that you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge is starting today and I hope you visit us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Jeremiah 29:12-13 and the Lord tells us, "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Have an awesome day!
