Saying goodbye to give thanks - day 3

Are you sick of this set yet? Well I absolutely love it, can you tell? This was a sketch challenge over on splitcoast stampers and I found the sketch very pleasing to the eye so I thought I would give it a try and this is what I came up with. I absolutely love it! Is it wrong to say that?

I sponged the edged of every square with the same color ink and I really like how it made the center of the squares seem to "pop". I also love my 3 buttons in the corner. Buttons are so much fun to use, you should really try it if you haven't yet. And of course I watercolored the basket full of leaves. I colored the handle and the rims darker then the rest of the basket and I can't take that idea as my own. Back in the fall I held a art on the walls class where we designed a frame with 3 different images from the give thanks stamp set. (Now I'm going to have to find a picture of the frame so I can post it, hold on)(ok found it, I can go on with my story now) My sister came to the class and she watercolored her basket like this and I really liked it, so I copied her's. Kind of reminds me of a longaberger basket I saw once. Any hooooooooooooo, I think I'm way off topic here. So I hope that everybody has a fantastic 4th of July and spend it with those that you love, stay safe and happy and of course Happy Stampin!
(by the way, I'm not sure why my font changed so sorry about that).
