So Thankful

Is it really time for fall!?  I'll have to admit, fall colors are not my favorite colors to work with.  I'm more of a pastel, pink and green girl, LOL.  Next time, you'll probably see a pink door!

I thought I'd join Joan's Gardens Challenges which asked for gingham, checks, or plaids.  It wasn't until I took the picture that I realized I used the lines in the checks to line up my layers so now it doesn't look like checks anymore.  Some of the layers have been edged with a Krylon Gold Leafing Pen.  I used Forest Moss Distress Ink on the checks layer and the butterfly was stamped with Forest Moss and then painted with Creative Inspirations Paint, Green Olive.
