It's time for another showcase and a new image over at Milkcoffee, this is pilgrim girl isn't she sweet? And perfect for thanksgiving :) 

We don't celebrate thanksgiving here in the UK, but it's still so much fun to create thanksgiving cards, especially when we have such great images like this to work with :)

We were set the theme of shaped cards, why not have a look at the other DT cards too. 

To make my shaped card, I used my silhouette and I cut the front opening edge of a blank card, to match the outline shape of my image.

The image was coloured with promarkers. I kept her clothes to a muted green, but to add a bit of overall warmth I made her hair a warm reddish brown. 

The sentiment was from harvest moon digi collection, layered on white and then a matching base layer. This was then mounted onto a hessian green style paper (freebie from an old magazine) shape cut using a sizzix tags die.

I then used two tags dies to create the frame, from the same green hessian style paper. This time though, I used a little distress ink on the edges, to give a better effect for a frame. I also stuck the frame on with 3D foam pads, to give it more depth.

The top and bottom of the card were framed with a mixed leaf cut out strip, with orange and green flowers to match the colours in the image. 

A couple of matching green pearls on the side of the frame and a piece of the green paper on the inside edge of the card (so it sits behind the image) and the card was finished.
