Sweet Stamps- Thanks

 It's another great challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Thanks.

 The snow is a comin' to the Midwest....I had to make this card before it was too late..... I was inspired by my friend Kim.......  (who does not have a blog...).
 I cut out a die and used double sided removable tape for the center of the cardstock.

 I then used various fall colors to stamp the images one at a time around the die cut.  I used the Shades die in Spots in the following colors: Dandelion, Butterscotch, Palm Grove, Tank, Papaya, Paprika. The ribbon was white to start out with and I dragged it through the Papaya Spot.
 I hope you will join in the challenge! Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by Random.org- so everyone has a chance to win!
