Serendipity - Thanksgiving!

This week's Serendipity Stamps design team challenge is to make a thanksgiving invitation and table accessories.  I've created a dinner invitation and a matching table place card.  I pulled out my Copics and had fun coloring the images.  I used the same stamp for both cards, just fussy-cutting some of the fruit out for the place card.

This invitation measures 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.  I kept the layout simple because I spent a lot of time coloring the image.  Keep that in mind when making multiples.

The little place card is just 3 1/4 x 2 3/4. 

Here is a closeup of the twine bow in the corner of the invite.  One little embellishment can add lots of interest to a card.  Super speedy to make with the Bow-Easy tool!

Check out what the rest of the design made!

What beautiful coloring Miriam. Honestly, you are so good at this! I think every item looks so realistic and the little twine bow was a super sweet added touch.
