Sweet Stamps- Thanks

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Thanks.
 I am in the Thanksgiving mind-set already.  I do not have to cook or clean, but am thinking about what I am making to bring to the celebration.
 I inked up the Avery Cornucopia image with Memento Tuxedo ink on Georgia Pacific cardstock.  The image was colored with Copic Markers.  I decided to 'ground' my image and started using my E00 marker below the image, then decided to add dots of different browns. The top of the card has a subtle blue sky- I punched out a scalloped oval and sponged on a pale blue ink on one edge of it. I added a sentiment from the Fall Owls set and added a border by Cheery Lynn.

Here are the items from the store I used:
Avery Cornucopia
Fall Owls-sentiment
Tuxedo Black Memento ink
Coordinations Papers- Sandy Tans (Quicksand and Sandstone) and Coffee Cafe (French Roast)
Cherry Lynn Tiffany border die
Copic Sketch markers

Our winners are chosen by and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2!

You don't have to cook or clean??? Well that is a Thanksgiving to enjoy! Love your card, Shelly! It is adorable and I love that image. We may go out this year as it will be just the two of us and I already made a turkey a couple of weeks ago! Oh the decisions!

What a wonderful idea to ground it and give it a sky. I don't think of things like that. That's why you da bomb! Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
