Chocolate Baroque: Merci - Canadian Thanksgiving

Good morning, friends! It's October and that means, autumn, falling leaves, harvest, thanksgiving, fruits, pies and halloween. And that is the theme at Chocolate Baroque this month.

Here's my autumn offering for the Canadian Thanksgiving which falls on October 10 this year. The fruity border is from the Mellow Fruitfulness A5 sheet. I decided on a simple greeting in French from the Pretty Poppies A5 sheet as this card is going to friends from Quebec.

I inked the edges with Distress Inks: Fossiled Amber and a touch of Spiced Marmalade to create a golden halo effect.  To finish the card, some gingham ribbon tied in a simple knot in yellow and orange to match the background.

I stamped the greeting with VersaFine Crimson Red. For the image I used Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Copics.
