CCMC Color Challenge - #330

Good Morning, Stampers!
Fall is definitely in the air at Create with Connie and Mary
What a rich-looking color palette - just gorgeous!


I decided to combine the color challenge with my FREE STAMP DAY this week. I created my version of a little Turkey using Curvy Keepsake treat box and the challenge colors (even though there is no brown!). I think he turned out pretty cute! I think he will make a great addition to any Thanksgiving table, don't you think? They can easily be personalized for place settings - a fun little surprise for your guests!




Be sure to visit Create with Connie and Mary to see all the Design Team creations - 
there are lots of great ideas that you just won't want to miss!


SU!pplies:
Paper: Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey
