I Pine for You

I am so so excited for Thanksgiving, I feel like a kid at Christmas.. I just can't control my excitement! I made my hubs a cute little Thanksgiving card for three challenges today. Both the photos I thought had a very similar theme/inspiration. (between you and me, I'm getting a little tired of brown/red/gold photo inspirations... I'm hoping this is the last one for a bit!)

Lawnscaping Challenge #22
Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger
Mojo Monday Sketch #216
With both photos I was inspired by: the natural wood and deep red colors, with a pop of orange. The wicker baskets. The feeling that both of these scenes take place somewhere in the middle of the forest.

I used stamps from Lawn Fawn "Critters in the Forest" to keep with a woodland theme. It's hard to see in the photo, but the brown vertical paper is woodprint pattern. I texture embossed it, sand papered it, and rubbed Tea Dye Distress ink to make it a richer brown. I also rubbed the brown ink over the white circles to make them look a little dirtier. Colored the stamps with color pencils, of course added Icicle Stickles to the shroomies, and faux stitched with my white gel pen. Hope the hubby enjoys it :)

This card is made for these challenges: Lawnscaping #22, Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, and Mojo Monday #216.

Have you sorted out your Thanksgiving menu?? What are you cooking for the big food fest?!
