Blessed, Grateful, Thankful

Hello Everyone,

For today I five cards that were derived by the the same sketch. Freshly Made Sketches made for the perfect card idea! So why did I make an insane amount of cards? Well, my church was honoring the teachers in our congregation and I was asked to make the cards to say thank you for all they do. So I went to work and here is the result.

Very colorful for fall and the sentiment fits right in with the fall design.
Notice the shine on the main panel. I also die cut the leaves metallic for just a bit of shimmer.

The main panel on this card has a velvet texture and the
dragonfly has a sheen of pearl-essence. 

As you can see the main panel of this card has gold
details and an embossed banner.

This panel is full of movement and not too much color.
The flower blends into its surrounding.

Entering Challenge:
Freshly Made Sketches- FMS204
 Below you will find the entire set of cards I made. The elder of the church loved how they turned out. I would like to ask you, which one is your favorite? Mine would be the 'thankful' card and that will be one I am submitting for this challenge.

That is all for now.. I hope you enjoyed your stay and please leave a comment as I really like to hear what you have to say.. Take care and see you sooner then later.

All the best,

Wow, Shawna,
all the beautiful cards. Every card has something different focusing attention. By contrast, everyone has their own preferences and closest to me are the card 2 and 4. They are awesome, so just the enchanted world.
