Happy Thanksgiving

     Hi there, today I have a card inspired by both a Sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and a card from the Muse Card Club.

I used the basic design from the sketch and the leaves and gold embossing from the Muse card. I added watercolor to color my images and the four stripes. First, I embossed these leaves by Altenew with their Golden Peach Embossing Powder, one small leaf and the sentiment

with WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle.These beautiful watercolors are from Cloves and Honey Handmade Watercolors, Apricot & Copper Mauve. I used watercolor paper so I could get it nice and wet before adding the pigment, I am still trying to figure out which paper I like best. Sorry about the poor pictures from my night time lighting. I will try once the sun is up and add those. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors Set to color the strips of kraft paper and give them a metallic look. Then I added the cluster of leaves and added the embossed sentiment.

     Thanks for taking a look at my Thanksgiving card! If you would like to take a look or participate in either of these challenges just click on their names below. -Jodi
