Thanksgiving Recipe

Happy August OCS fans! This month the design team will be featuring Fall/Halloween Stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 

Fall is my favourite time of my year. I love the cooler temperatures and the gorgeous colours of the leaves changing colours.

Fall is also when we celebrate Thanksgiving and today my card, featuring "Chef Pierre", is all about Thanksgiving. I went with some non-traditional fall colours on this one!

After colouring the stamp with alcohol markers I fussy cut him out. The "sentiment" was created on my computer. I added some silver and white ribbon, silver magic mesh and some gumdrops to finish it off. Silver Wink of Stella gave his buttons and the turkey platter a little bit of sparkle. 
I used some very non-traditional fall colours on this one but I wanted to stay with my red and grey colour scheme.
