Harvest Time


Happy start to a new week!  It was a beautiful day here in Columbia with sunny skies, cooler temps and no humidity.  Yep, a new season is almost here.  With that in mind, I have a card to share that combines two of my favorite Fall sets, Let Us be Thankful and Maize Corn by Doodle Pantry

 I merged the turkey from Let Us Be Thankful on top of the corn stalks from Maize Corn to create my scene.  Coloring was done with Irojiten colored pencil.  I distressed the edges with brushed corduroy Distress Ink;  then covered my image with VersaMark ink before heat embossing with two coats of clear embossing powder. Final step was framing the image with 2 different Spellbinder dies.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Bloggers Challenge -- Bring on Fall
Raise the Bar Challenge #110 -- Celebrate Fall
No Matter the Challenge (NMWC) #2 -- Die Cuts and/or Punches
Challenges 4 Everybody #2 -- Anything Goes

Thanks so very much for your visit.  Hope you have a wonderful week!
