World Gratitude Day Blog Hop



Fall is finally upon us and REVERSE CONFETTI is celebrating the change of seasons along with a little known holiday. Did you know that today is World Gratitude Day? World Gratitude Day is your opportunity to show your gratitude and appreciation for anything or anyone in your life with meaningful actions. To get you in the spirit of gratitude, the CONFETTI CREW has put together some fabulous creations with a “fall-ish flair” and a special “Gratitude Blog Hop”.


The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Amy Kolling’s blog. We hope you take a few minutes to enjoy what we’ve put together. We want the gratitude to be contagious enough to inspire you to get creative and make something for someone you appreciate!
For my card, I started out with a number collage cut file that I've had in my Silhouette library forever. The sentiment is done with a combination of COUNT YOUR RAINBOWS and LIGHTHEARTED LETTERS. I added two acorns from FOREVER FALL and a few other fall accents to finish off the sentiment cluster. 



My color inspiration came from this gorgeous photo:
