Paper smooches colour challenge

Hey there!

I'm really glad that I managed to catch some decent light this morning to take a pic of my latest creation for the Paper Smooches challenge. It's one of those crisp, sunny Autumn days here in the UK, cold but utterly beautiful!

I was inspired not so much by the colours of the Paper Smooches Sparks cool shades colour challenge this week, but by the name of the pallette, 'giving thanks'. I have been desperate to ink up a turkey (or peacock) with my 'My Peeps' set and practice my masking! So I made a thanksgiving card, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK obviously but I do have a couple of American friends who I hope would appreciate recieving this!

You can't see on the pic, but I used glossy accents on Mr Turkey's eyes and his cute little Quaker Hat. I also had to colour all the little yellow leaves red to tie in with this week's colour scheme, a labour of love, lol!

I would also like to enter this card for the thanks giving challenge at simon says stamp

SSS blog

Thanks for looking today!
