A Thankful Heart - A Day for Daisies

It's my turn today to share a project made with an image from A Day for Daisies, and the beautiful  image showcased on my card today is called A Thankful Heart which I coloured using alcohol markers and white gel pen:

I used the following to create my card:
white cs card base
corrugated kraft board
cploured borders
feathers and a wooden leaf charm
sewn on beads

The sentiment is from Create with TLC
