Just Us Girls Challenge 8

JUGs (Just Us Girls) had a color challenge this week ~ the colors weree: Pumpkin Pie (which speaking of....guess what it going to be going in the oven in about an hour?? Yup TWO pumpkin pies!), Really Rust and Bashful Blue. In addition to the colors we needed to have a sentiment showing thanks (since today *IS* Thanksgiving) =)
So, here is my thankful, colorful creation =)

I paper pieced Tilda's dress using pumpkin pie, really rust and bashful blue colors (which also cordinate with the DP at the top of the card) ~ then I colored the rest using Copics (RV10, E25, G17, BG01, E00, E33, Y21, YR23) and added a little sparkle here and there using a lemon and gold Spica pen. I think this is probably one of my favorite Tilda stamps (if not my favorite) ~ sunflowers are my favorite flowers....that is one thing I miss.....there are no sunflower fields around here like there are back home where I grew up.
Hope ya'll have a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
