Thankful for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #285

One minute we were in October and the next minute it's November!  Last month just flew by and here we are with a new theme at
Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge which is 
"Let's Give Thanks"
Whereas I love, love, love all of Mo Manning's cute characters, my card today needed a more serious note of gratitude so I purchased "Pick of the Patch" which comes with an adorable little girl who has found her perfect pumpkin but I just used some of her pumpkins and not the girl herself.  Instead, I merged her pumpkins with the bonus image which came with it and created a larger pumpkin pile which I attempted to watercolour with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  I have very limited skills and almost no experience of watercolouring and it's harder than it looks but by teaming the image with some pretty papers (which I think are DCWV Sweater Weather) and a PTI thankful die, I achieved my goal of a non-cutesy card.
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments #239 - Anything Goes (with a Sentiment); Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, Water Cooler Wednesdays #245 and Crafty Creations #401 all of which have Anything Goes; and Time Out - where one of the inpsirational words are "Dream Big, Be Grateful, Give Love, Laugh Lots".  There is lots of lovely inspiration from my teamies and we really would love to see you grab a Mo Manning image and come and play along with us.  Do also check out Mo's other sites ...
