Audrey The Pilgrim by The Stamping Boutique

Welcome to our The Stamping Boutique almost Thanksgiving blog hop!
If you arrived here from Stacie's blog you're on the right track, if not and you'd like to start at the beginning click here.


For my card I used Pilgrim Audrey, she's colored with Copic markers E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, C00, C1, C3, YR00, E00, E000, R02 cut out with Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval nestabilities dies and matted on a piece of brown paper bag (the lunch sack variety) that I put through the paper crimper and attached to a panel of Nut Brown card stock.  I must warn you, I seem to have an obsession about this sketch layout I can't stop making it!  Hopefully I can space out the blog posts with other projects between all the cards I've made with this basic layout.  

I also used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the very top of the white panel and the "Give Thanks" on the bottom is a rubber stamp by Copper Leaf Creations.  Two Dew Drops from the Men's collection on either side of Audrey's scalloped oval finished off my card.

As you've read at the other designers blogs we are playing a secret letter game for a prize, to be eligible to win you have to leave a comment on each blog on the hop and my letter is "K".
There's also a free digital image at The Stamping Boutique here.

I hope you are enjoying our blog hop and have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family!
Your next stop on this tour is our very talented Jenn!
