Altered cross stitching hoop : Give Thanks

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share my Thanksgiving altered project made with totally non fall / non Thanksgiving BoBunny collection.
This week  the DT members were challenged to make Thanksgiving project. I was also challenged  to make Mantel decoration. So from the beginning there were two major problems with this project.
 First of all I didn't even know what this one was. Then I was told that this is a fireplace decor. Living in Israel  the fireplace is the least used thing in our life. So I just made a nice home decoration and took a photo over the only shelf I have in my home. Really. There is a TV screen over each and every other drawer or shelf in my house, so imagine that you have a fireplace and my decoration is a part of your fireplace space.
The second problem was that I never got any Fall or Thanksgiving paper collection.
So this Floral Spice new and most gorgeous collection was the closest to the Thanksgiving that I had and yes, it worked!

I tried to make the simple and affordable and something that any crafter can make with just one BoBunny collection without die cutting, stamping or Mixed Media add- ons.

The background was made with two pieces of cardstock; the upper  circle  edges were covered with BoBunny Gold Glitter paste.
Then some more layers were added using Combo Stickers, cardstock hand cuts, a couple of Layered chipboards etc.
Two flower clusters were made with a lot of hand cut paper flowers from one single cardstock piece and layered with American Crafts foam dots.
The circled saying was made with Thickers from another new and adorable collection- Something Splendid.
The Floral Spice  collection has it's own lovely Thickers, but the color was too dark to be seen over my decoration hoop and I decided to use gold for the brighter color.

 I added some gold glitter paste dots over the paper flowers and around the hoop.
Product list:
Floral Spice collection 12'' cardstock- Floral Spice, Owls, Intrigue, Take Flight, Memories
Floral Spice Combo Stickers
Floral Spice Layered chipboards
Something Splendid Thikers
Gold Glitter Paste

American Crafts:
Sticky thumb glue  runner
Sticky thumb adhesive foam dots

 I hope that you like my " non fireplace" altered piece!
Thanks for being here with me today and see you in a week with my first Christmas project!
