Giving Thanks

Yeah it is Tuesday Morning Sketch time once again. Sketch #120 is the judged challenge for the month. Create a paper project using the sketch and the added twist is  'Giving Thanks'  or a Thank You card. Can't wait to see what you design.  This week's sketch was created by the talented Melissa and the sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.



Since Thanksgiving is next week I chose to use a delicious digital image. Of course.......life is uncertain so eat dessert first! Keeping that in mind my card starts with dessert... "Pumpkin Pie"! yum yum yum    The challenge at Our Creative Corner is to create a "pumpkin" card.  So feast your eyes on this delicious low calorie pumpkin pie!




I stayed close to Melissa sketch but made a landscape view card instead of a portrait view.  The image was colored with Prisma colored pencils and blended with Gamsol.  Stickles, gel pens and metallic pens were used to add a touch of bling.  The sentiment was stamped with Hero Arts alphabet stamps and heat embossed with Stampendous embossing powder.  The DP is from a Me and My Big Ideas pad, the ribbon is from Michael's and the glitter leaves are from a Jolee sticker pack.

Great cards from the DT. Take a look: Angela,  Dawn Jacki,  Jessica,  Kathy, Theresa,  Melissa

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
