Peaceful Thanksgiving

Is it only Wednesday?  It's been one of those weeks where work has been draining...booooo!  So when I get in this funk I have to force myself to think of the brighter side.  #1 I'm definitely grateful to have a job and #2 I couldn't see myself doing anything else...well...I could see myself crafting all day, but that wouldn't pay the bills...hehehe.

Anyway I wanted to enter the next Pinspired Challenge.  Here's my card...

Avery Elle Oh Happy Day, Memento Inks in Bahama Blue, Tangelo, Teal Zeal, Rosebud, Pear Tart and Tuxedo Black, Studio Calico wood veneer birds, ribbon, Crate Paper On Trend, Copic marker

 This card was initially sent in for publication, but didn't make the cut so now I can share it with blogland! 

I thought the birds, colors and foliage were pretty similar to the inspiration photo.  The actual design was inspired by a shirt my daughter wore one day that had all these elements in a peace sign.  Hope you like it.  I had fun stamping it out!

P.S. I'm also thinking of entering this in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: I'm Craving Navy as it does have some navy elements and white with linear lines like the photo below

As always MAHALO for stopping by!
