ColourQ Challenge #111

Hello again!  I am really excited about this week's creation for the ColourQ #111 Challenge!

The colors are super fab this week!  Perfect for fall.  Here the are:

I was blessed with inspiration this week!  LOVE that!  I wanted to make a list where I could record things I am thankful for each day of the month of November.  So as I was thinking of that, I thought of Josh Groban's song 'Thankful' that I just LOVE, and I had the words to use for the top of the list.  Truly, if you haven't heard Josh's 'Thankful' I urge you to check it out!  It is one of my all time favorite songs.  It is on his Christmas album.
So, here is my creation:

 And another look:

I created most of this in Photoshop.  Apart from the patterned paper (which I recolored) I created everything from scratch!  I created the leaf with the custom shape tool and then made it a clipping mask on the patterned paper to make it patterned.  I printed it and cut it out and pop dotted it on the flourish.

The 'So much to be' and 'for' are in Crumb Cake.  Crumb Cake also appears on the } on the bottom.  Just wanted to clarify that in case it was hard to see! ;)

Today I think I'll write that I am thankful for inspiration!

Thanks for looking at my blog!  I am so glad you do!!  I love reading your comments too!

Have a creative day!
