CCC #51

It's challenge day over at Cricut Cardz Challenge. The challenge today is to create a Thanksgiving card using any cartridge, and the colors brown, yellow, white, orange and blue. Here is what I came up with:



Thanksgiving was last month here in Canada, and one of my Dad's favorite Thanksgiving treats is Pumpkin Pie. I decided to make this cute little card in honor of him. The pie is from Smiley Cards, the free Gypsy download. The paper is all from Stampin Up. The stamps are from My Pink Stamper (yummy) and Stampenduous (Happy Thanksgiving), the ribbon is from Michael's. I used some chalk to try to give the pie some color, a real pie has color varitaions, and parts that have darkened a little more - it did not work exactly how I had hoped, but it looks OK. I cheated a bit on the colors - I gave the pie pink cheeks - it occured to me later that I could have used peach :) I also used some black, especially for the ink. I find color challenges especially hard. Every time I am told I CAN'T use a color, it is all I want to use - silly, huh?

I hope you all head over to Cricut Cardz Challenge, take a peek at what DT #2 has come up with, and play along with us.

A la prochaine...
