Let us give thanks!

I love autumn: the vibrant colours as the leaves turn are exhilarating yet curiously calming. The days are getting shorter and cooler...and food is getting heavier and warmer! As we say goodbye to summer it's good to remember that even in our darkest moments, we truly have much to be thankful for. I made this 5"x5" card  for the MojoMonday sketch challenge #208. I used Koh-i-Noor Aquarelle pencils to colour in the stamped image. Then I stamped more leaves on green paper from Basic Grey's "Pyrus" pack, cut and stuck them to the image to "lush" it up.

Adoro o outono: curiosamente, as cores vibrantes que aparecem com a transformação das folhas das árvores são ao mesmo tempo excitantes e calmantes. Os dias começam a ficar mais pequenos e mais frescos... e a comida a ficar mais quente e mais pesada! Ao dizermos adeus ao verão é bom lembrar que mesmo nos momentos mais sombrios, temos realmente muito pelo que dar graças. Este cartão mede 13x13cm.
