Thanksgiving Card

Well, here in Canada Thanksgiving is over. So why you ask am I posting a thanksgiving card??
Well, the idea for this card has been running around my head ever since I recieved this Wheat stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. And, pieces of the card have been sitting around waiting for me to bring all the elements together.
The image was inked in Close to Cocoa and stamped, and then inked again and partially stamped to get "more wheat". Then, using my oval coluzzle I cut out most of an oval and used my hobby knife to finish cutting around the wheat. Then I inked the edges in More Mustard and then just the edges with Close to Cocoa. I placed a piece of So Saffron underneath after using a dauber to add a bit of More Mustard across the top and some Close to Cocoa along the bottom. Once this piece was in place under the oval, I stamped this thankful sentiment from Happy Harmony (SU). I finished the front off with some antique brass brads from my Hodgepodge Hardware (SU) and put it all on a Close to Cocoa card.
You can probably tell that these are the colors I love to use most but I continue to try to get out of that creative box and dabble with some of the other color families.
Thanks for visiting!
