Happy Thanksgiving

A couple of challenges are asking us to make Fall cards and I am happy to switch from my Christmas prep to Fall cards. 

I'm using my beloved Huntington paper pack to make my card:

It is based on the sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge:

It happens to qualify for the color challenge at Heart 2 Heart challenges - Barn Red, Sunset, Gypsy and Cashmere.  Well, I didn't mean to use Gypsy, as purple does not appear to match with the color scheme, but I like how I've made the flower pop out more with a Gypsy ring here.  To tone brightness down I've sanded the paper to expose its white core and I think it is not too odd.

I have put three gems on my card.  These mocha gems have been in my stash since they were released years ago.  They were so cute and pretty that I just had a difficult time to part with them.  Interestingly I have no problem to part with sparkles but have been very indecisive in using pearls/gems.  My card is thus entering Clear It Out Challenge to show my mocha gems.

My card is also entering the challenge at
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Fall colors/ patterns
Paper Playtime - Use three different papers

Thanks for stopping by!
