A Sweet Sketch Color Throwdown Thanksgiving

Hello Friends! Happy Thanksgiving! I haven't played along with a color challenge in a long time, although they always intrigue me .. and tonight, I absolutely could not resist this week's Color Throwdown... the colors are probably one of my most favorite combos .. Real Red, Taken with Teal, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip. nice, right?  I just thought it went perfectly with this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge, which happens to be one of my favorite weekly challenges. Top it off with this adorable, brand-new stamp set from Paper Smooches and I am one happy crafter! Paper Smooches always inspire me to 'think outside the box' and that is why my little gnome has such a unique beard. This card just makes me smile, I hope it does you, too.

Stamps: Paper Smooches Forest Whimsey
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Taken with Teal, Baja Breeze,
 Echo Park spots & stripes dp, Cottonball white
