Turkey Time!

I've said in the past that I don't do vintage very well, and not to many flowers, but as usual I surprised myself, and as usual I couldn't find any vintage challenges. This really turned out pleasing to my eye.
I have to say to Arielle at Colour Q
thanks for the great color challenges. I have run out of soft suede paper and haven't placed my next Stampin Up order yet. I have this huge pad of My Mind's Eye designer paper that I have used a little bit, but have wanted to put to better use. When I started looking for the papers that I could substitute for pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss, taken with teal, soft suede, + neutral these papers jumped out at me as muted versions of these colors and they went so well with the image I had already chosen from Print Master 11 for the challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge . My sketch is from Humble Pie Stamps
and I hope Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches will let me squeak by with counting my image as a decorative paper since I printed it(kind of like a digital image, maybe). My floral background photographed as looking kind of pinkish, but in real life it's a muted soft suede. My photo box has made a big difference in my photos, but alas, the operator of camera is still photo challenged:)
I love sponging around the edges of papers, it really softens and enhances everything, and I do love my copper embossing powder.
4 Challenges:
Supplies: Card Blank 6" X 6" square, Papers: CTMH: green, My Mind's Eye designer pad #MMEBK 1, Stamps: CTMH: D1212 Playful Flourishes, Ink: VersaMark ink pad, Stampin Up: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Judikins copper embossing powder, Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels One, Prima Flowers, tiny copper heart brads, ribbon: Offray, image from Print Master 11, glue dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
