PDCC151

This is the first time that I have created a card for a challenge at The Play Date Cafe.  When I saw the colour inspiration for this week my heart skipped a beat--isn't it gorgeous?  It is Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada and I still have a few cards to finish up so the two combined made for play time.

Stamps: Thinks Big Favorites #19, Background Basics: Medallion
Ink:  Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, True Black
Felt: Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Canyon Clay
