Papers Sweeties Sketch Challenge - November 2012

Hey!  Have  you heard?  There's a new game in town!  The Paper Sweeties is officially launching a monthly sketch challenge!  So it's time to grab you're favorite set and come play!!.   All you need to do is make a creation following the monthly theme and link it on the Paper Sweeties blog to enter.  One winner will receive two Paper Sweetie Stamp sets of their choice.  Here's the sketch for this month from Ms. Shabby Chic herself Debbie Marcinkiewicz - founder of Paper Sweeties!

 Since it is a monthly challenge I thought I would make a Thanksgiving inspired card.   I confess that I am not sure who the paper is by.  It has been in my hoard - I mean stash - for a while now and it always reminds me of Thanksgiving.  It goes back to my pre-blog days when I didn't keep track of brands - just collecting the patterns that I loved.  I  use it sparingly and it's made it through more than a few seasons!   I'm thinking you know what I'm talking about here!    I colored in Jake and Abigail with Copic markers and couldn't resist using the little Tom turkey in the set as my bow topper!  Isn't he the cutest with his little hat, boots, and collar?

Here is the finished card...

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!  I hope you find some time to play and check out the new challenge site at Paper Sweeties!
