Kaboodle Doodles - Week 93 Challenge

The Kaboodle Doodles Challenge this week is Thanksgiving and this week's winner will receive some wonderful images from A Day for Daisies. My card features one of their digis "A Kiss from Sis." I didn't do any coloring on this image, but think I may make another card and try my hand at some watercolors. I found a sentiment online and printed it from my computer. I used some Autumn paper from Olivia Level 2 paper pack and mounted the image and sentiment on textured Barn Red cardstock. The flowers are Bazill, but everything else is CTMH.
I distressed using my favorite technique. You dip a glue brush (availabe in packs of 10 at your local hobby store) in some reinker and flick the brush from the outside of your paper in to get a feathered effect. I generally use Cocoa or Chocolate, but tried Parchment on this card and I think the results compliment the paper very well. Now it's your turn!

I am also entering this card at:
