With Gratitude

Wow. This card took F O R E V E R  to complete. It doesn't look like much. I'm trying to think what took SO long. I think it was the leaves. I probably stamped a dozen before I got the colors I wanted. The turkey took a while too. It was done with markers. Oh, and the feather. That took a while as well. I guess it all adds up. I won't even admit to how long it took from start to finish. This card has been entered in the SUO Challenges blog for challenge #82 Harvest Time!

Here's the Sketch!

I got this wonderful color combination from Fab Friday's Blog. They also have wonderful challenges. This was from challenge #26.
