Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Thanksgiving Wishes

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project that expresses a spirit of thanksgiving. I made this card using this week's tutorial over on Splitcoast...

I watercolored the pumpkins using Distress Markers, and stamped a few background images with the marker ink from my palette.

The card is a Pop-Up Book Card, and in general, foldy cards hate me... but this one was surprisingly friendly. Inside the card there are just 2 cut lines, and the score lines were easy to follow.

Once it's all folded in the right directions, the center section looks like an open book.

Stamps I used:
Pumpkin Pair, CAC Vines Vertical, Thankful, Thank You for Thinking
