Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends in the U.S.! I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating. Today's card shows my appreciation for all of you who have given me so much inspiration! I used Amber Ink's Hostess with the Mostess which I now have in the clear stamp version. I paper pieced the hostess' apron, dress and shoes with Amber Ink iPapers and coloured in the rest of her with Copics. After stamping the background using two sentiments from Unity's September Kit, I adhered the hostess to the card base with dimensionals. Enjoy your turkeys and all that is good in life!

Awesome card! Your paper-piecing is perfect, especially how you did the apron! Colouring is fab, as always. (Funny, I never look like that after I've spent the afternoon making a turkey dinner! :P)
