GRS Design Team Challenge

It's challenge day for the Gourmet Rubber Stamps team!  Here in the Felts household, we're doing our very best to switch gears from Thanksgiving into Christmas, so I'm hoping this cute little gnome will help me catch the Christmas spirit!  

Our challenge is a color challenge.  Our design seeds palette is absolutely beautiful! I love the coral and deeper red together against the ivories, browns and greens of the background, so that's the look I tried to bring to my card.  I used Memento inks, Ranger distress inks and Copic markers along with Simple Stories Handmade Holiday designer paper, some red pleated satin ribbon, brown pom-pom trim, a jute-tied banner (with very old rub-on letters!) and a heat-embossed snowflake.  And just in case there's any doubt this year whether you made Santa's naughty list or's the sentiment for the inside!

You will find more inspiration for the Gourmet Rubber Stamps' design team color challenge by visiting the GRS blog!  Be sure to look for Black Friday specials as you shop at GRS stamps and i {heart} papers!

This Thanksgiving was one of the best we've had!  I cooked for days, beginning on Monday with copper penny salad, and ending in a flurry on Thursday with fresh bread hot out of the oven for dinner.  I tried to take pictures all along the way...I'm sharing my favorite, straight out of the camera except for resizing.  The rest of the pictures are in an album on FaceBook if you'd like to see them.
