Tom's Plea

Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner - I wish I knew where this year has gone! 
Tom's plea is a simple one really but his wish for a Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family is sincere. 

Tom's plea is simple so I wanted to keep my card layout CAS to match. This was a challenge for me as it is way outside of my comfort zone. I also coloured this stamp with Prismacolor Premier Pencils which is also totally! out of my comfort zone. Still lots of practice needed but I am pretty happy with how this turned out. 
After colouring Tom, I hand fussy cut him and set him aside. I cut my cardstock background to the size I needed and smooshed some pale yellow ink on part of it. I put this piece into my Misti and stamped my sentiment. Some sequins and gumdrops finish off my card.
