An Early Thanksgiving

Well, being in the UK at the moment, the weather seems a bit more like fall than spring, so I was inspired to buy and color this lovely digi image from Simply Betty Stamps .  As an American, one of the things I miss being in the UK is celebrating Thanksgiving.  Luckily my family still live in the U.S., so I will find someone to send this card to when the time comes.

Ok, here is the card:

I absolutely love this image, and had fun coloring it.  I do have to start printing digis smaller though, as I barely fit this on half an A4 card.  The coloring was done with Flex and Pro Markers and the distressing was done with Dried Marigold Distress Ink and Butterscotch Adirondack Ink.  I cut the top layers with Grand Nestabilities dies, and the backing paper is from a Woodland Folk paper set I have had in my stash for yonks.

I wanted to pick up the blue from the image throughout the card, so I added the blue square gems on the corners.

Anyway, I thought I would share this with you all out there is crafty blog land.  I hope you like it.

Take care and happy crafting!
