     Well, less than a week now until we in the US celebrate Thanksgiving so our theme at QKR Stampede this week is "Thanks or Thanksgiving."   One of my favorite QKR images (aren't they all my favorites? lol) is this happy little pilgrim!  (Digi 17609 Pilgrim)  Can't you tell he's just about to go get the turkey for his family to eat during their gratitude celebration?

     I colored him all in neutrals with my ProMarkers and used one of my newest stitched dies (STAMPlorations) to cut it out, then matted the image with three layers of CS.  I used a kraft card base, added a triangle of dp and layered everything together, finishing with the cut and matted sentiment (Digi 13815 Happy Thanksgiving.)  The bow is wrapped burlap.

What a wonderful Thanksgiving card! Your pilgrim is so full of life and has such a great expression! I love how you colored him in neutrals, yet is still looks lively! I also like the subtle background you created that has the perfect amount of color and pattern to accent your pilgrim, but not overpower him. This was a joy to see and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
