Bushels of Thanks - KSS Let's Make a Scene

This week's Let's Make a Scene design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps was created for the Hope You Can Cling To event at Splitcoaststampers. It was inspired by hostess Holly Brown wo chose as her theme "Bunches of Thanks" which brought to my mind bushels of mums for autumn. 

I started with the three baskets of mums across the bottom of the card front and then masked them to add the truck. I then masked the truck to sponge in the road and grass and sky. The leaves for the birch tree where stamped next. I stamped the tree trunks on computer paper and cut them out to mount over the sponged sky.

The sentiment was computer generated and then punched out with an oval punch and mounted on another decorative punched piece.

Lastly, I stamped and fussy cut another basket of mums to pop up on the bottom right corner of the card.

What a great way to spend a lazy, rainy Saturday morning! This card is going to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas to be used by a cancer patient there. I hope it brings them a little joy and comfort!
