A season of Thanks

November brings crisp, cool days that might find you heading into your favourite coffee shop to grab a cup of warmth, and dwell in that inviting aroma that only a cozy cafe can bring.


I chose this beautiful fall/Thanksgiving image from one of my favorite stamp sets called A Season of Thanks.  I wanted to use the Timeless Tuesday challenge which is to create a NEGATIVE DIE CUT SHAPE.  As you can see here, I cut out the oval with my Spellbinders dies and set the image inside.


In the photo below you can see how I popped up the different layers to add depth.
