Happy Thanksgiving Sketch Card

I like sketch challenges because they give me a "recipe" for my card layout that I wouldn't have normally thought of. Often they help me use up scraps of design paper, too, so that's a bonus!

This card follows the sketch over at The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge. If you haven't heard of The Outlawz challenges, you should definitely pop over to Outlawz Challenges and join in the fun! They have 9 different challenges covering a wide variety of themes. 

I used a Gerda Steiner digi for my card and colored it with Copics and Chameleon markers. Gerda's stamps are so adorable! And this one has a lot of fun details. 

The "Happy Thanksgiving" stamp is from a retired Close To My Heart stamp set that has 2 small stamps for each of the major holidays. I've gotten a lot of use out of it over the years.
