Thanksgiving Wishes

Good morning!  Happy Friday! Can it possibly be Friday already?  I guess there is no way around it.  Hope you have fun plans for the weekend anyway!  I am popping in early to share a card I made for two of my DTs - Guylou's Inimitability and the Copic/Promarker Challenge at The Outlawz.  I rarely get to combine my DT assignments, but it worked perfectly this week because both had the theme of Thanks or Thanksgiving.  In fact, I am the hostess for this new challenge at Guylou's!

Here are the Guylou's Challenge details:
Challenge Deadline:
You have until 10:00 PM (EDT) on November 29th to link your project to the Inlinkz at the end of the challenge post.
How to participate:
You may enter only ONE project per challenge, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries.  If you don't have one of Guylou's digistamps, you can check the online store where several freebies are available.  
Challenge Prizes:
A winner will be selected randomly and will win:
1. A $10.00 gift certificate from Guylou's online store
2. An invitation to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is: Ursula
Ursula was the winner of our recent Just To Die For Challenge and was invited to join us this week. Check out her beautiful project on Guylou's Inimitability Blog.

Here is my card for both challenges:

My card base and mats are GKD Dark Brown and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Mabel 6x6 pad.  My cute image is Leah Cooks A Turkey from Guylou's Inimitability.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Bisque Liquid Pearls for the detail on her apron pockets.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A chocolate rope bow and a few chocolate pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of Leah:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit Guylou's Inimitability blog and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the DT and our Guest Designer, Ursula!  We hope you will be inspired to play along with us! Also, please visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge and view the team's gorgeous, thankful projects!  The November challenges are being sponsored by Mischelle at That's Fabulous!.  One randomly-selected participant will win their choice of three digis and one paper pack from That's Fabulous!.  Plus, there are also lots of awesome monthly site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!
