CTD269, FLLC, Thanksgiving Figs

This challenge was done for the color throw down - #269.  The colors were dusty durango, peach parfait, soft suede, pear pizzazz, and very vanilla.  I substituted cajun craze for the durango, and pumpkin pie for the peach.  I watercolored the fig image from Flourishes.  I added a bit of colored pencil to enhance the shading a bit.  The embossed panel was done with the SU wallpaper folder.  My sentiment comes from SU's tiny wishes.  I attached a piece of ribbon with a pin.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  :>)

CC451, Warm Poinsettia...

This card was made for the 451st color challenge on SCS.  Nancy picked these colors.  At first I wasn't sure what I thought.  Getting closer to Christmas I thought of a poinsettia.  As it turned out, I think these colors worked very well for this.  I watercolored with real red, calypso coral, and old olive.  I also used a poinsettia embossing folder to add a little texture to my card.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  Thanks for looking!!  :>)
