Today is the eve of Thanksgiving here in the USA. Until I came to the States just over 15 years ago it was not a holiday I was familiar with, but over the years I have learned the meaning of the day and what it represents.
Falling in the autumn also means using the lovely rich tones that I love so much. Many years ago my mother and I had our colors ‘analysed’ she was deemed to be a ‘Green Autumn’ and I was a ‘Golden Autumn’ ~ so I have used golden autumn colors in my card today.
Base Card : 11 x 4 1/4 Crushed Curry card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
