A Day for Daisies: "Attitude of Gratitude" Challenge #6


Today's challenge over at "a day for daisies" is to create a card that shows gratitude.  Create any card using a sentiment of gratitude. But here's the have to come up with the sentiment and design yourself! No pre-made thanks allowed!

First of all here's the sentiment that I created to use on my card. 

Gratitude requires a gracious attititude.

I think this needs to be an attitude we have all year instead of just during the Holiday Season.  I hear people say that someone needs to "adjust" their attitude.  It reminds me of a thermostat.  I have a programmable thermostat at home; therefore, if I program my attitude to always be gracious despite the attitude of others, I will fair a lot better.  Okay, here's the card that I created using this beautiful image of this statuesque Native American woman.  TFL!

I actually made two cards using this image and couldn't decide which one to use so I went with this one.  She is such a beautiful image and reminds me a lot of my heritage.  You can pick this beautiful image up {here} and you can visit the challenge blog by clicking {here}.  We would love to have you join us!  Make sure to check out what the other talented DT ladies have come up with and leave some ♥. 

Sentiment:  Me!
DP:  K&C Company, Cor'dinations Cardstock
Punch:  MS
Diecuts:  Spellbinders Scallop Circle and Circle
Accessories:  SU Ribbon, gems and embellishment from my stash

 Now get to creating...
Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
