Happy Saturday, and another SSDS Challenge

I am so proud of this card! I can hardly stand it!

You see, I do basic simple cards mostly, and to the people I send them to - that's fine. But now and then I get pushed (or pulled) into trying something different by the DT and their choices of challenges!

And that's the case with this Flower Pot card Challenge today. I had never tried this before, and was a little anxious. But boy, do I like it!

I didn't want to do flowers specifically because of the season, and I thought the leaves and such would work out OK. The pot itself is covered with wallpaper - turned out really nice and it's textured and I love it!

When you pull out the card it says Happy Thanksgiving!
The sponsor for this week at SSDS is Dustin Pike. The winner will get their choice of I believe it's 3 images! Now that's a cool prize!

So come on and join us. You have a whole week (and you know you don't really want to go shopping on Black Friday with all the crowds and such! - and that's assuming you don't get it done today!)
This was such fun I think I'll make another to get in the mail on Monday!

And when my husband saw it tonight, he asked who I was sending it to, as it was Extra Nice! How's that for a compliment!

Great job! I love how you used wallpaper to make the pot look like a basket, very creative.

That is absolutely awesome! At first glance I was thinking how real the pot looked and then read it was actual wallpaper! Fabulous.
