Thanksgiving Imagery

Welcome! We're in the home stretch for Thanksgiving and this is my favorite time of year.  I love the warm colors of fall and the cozy and comforting symbols and imagery of the Thanksgiving holiday like this digi stamp collection from Doodle Pantry that I'm showcasing today.

I thought it would be nice to use this image for Thanksgiving cards for a more elegant and earthy look.  The images used here are from the Doodle Pantry collection called "Maize Corn". 

Copic markers were used with a bit of Prismacolor pencils too for certain highlights and light touches of color here and there.

The colors were inspired not only by Indian Corn in real life but also this photo from the Color Q Challenge #111. I love this rich color combination.

I'd also like to enter this card in these challenges as well:
