My mom has a friend who wants to give a plaque to a couple who help her quite a bit. This is my first attempt though I think it is too "fall" for a Christmas gift.
This definitely highlights some of my favorite things as the Ways to Use It Challenge asks for today: Neutrals, Natural items, Scripture, Distressing, Layered bg Stamping
I started with a sheet of Confetti Cream paper. I stamped the Canvas bg in River Rock. Then I inked up my wheel with Crumb Cake and added the words. I stamped the leaf images in Early Espresso. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede and framed with a Kraft frame that I distressed with the Cutter Kit distressing tool. I die cut a Kraft leaf and stamped my sentiments and used Crumb Cake to add the Canvas bg and then sponged with Soft Suede. Last addition was a chunky twine bow that I recycled...another of my favorite things.

What a wonderful gift! I think it's an excellent Christmas gift because it's not too seasonal to be displayed throughout the year. You've combined so many lovely elements to make this gorgeous plaque. It's beautiful!
