Happy Thanksgiving

I know it's a little early to be thinking about Thanksgiving, I mean we haven't even made it to Halloween yet, but I've had this little image for so long and haven't used it. I figured this was the perfect time. Scrappy Frogs is having a Thanks challenge. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and created this Happy Thanksgiving card.



I used Native American Tilda as my image. I masked her and have her sitting on a bench. She is colored with copic markers and this is one of the first times I have ever colored black hair. I've always been intimidated by it, but it wasn't as hard as I expected. I added a flower up in the corner with some leaves and some fall looking berries that I found at the craft store. The sentiment is from my favorite sentiment set- label accents.
