My card today was created based on two challenges: The Rubber Redneck STAMPede Sketch Challenge #2 and the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #115. I so enjoy the colors of Fall so the inspiration photo was a pleasure to work with.
The card base is More Mustard card stock. I added a layer of Soft Suede card whose corners were rounded with a corner punch. To a layer of Very Vanilla card stock I added two strips of Spice Cake designer paper and rounded all the corners. A piece of crochet trim was added over the seam. Another piece was added from the top, folded under near the bottom, tied with a piece of linen thread and tacked to the card front with a glue dot. The sentiment from the Tagtastic stamp set was heat embossed on a piece of Very Vanilla with VersaMark, More Mustard ink and clear embossing powder. I rounded the corners and matted it with a piece of Soft Suede card stock with rounded corners. The sentiment layer was attached to the card front with dimensionals. Two pearls that I colored with permanent markers were added. Another clean and simple card but perfect for a thank you to a hostess for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. I know the weekend is drawing to a close, but I hope you had a chance to spend some fun time with family and/or creating something special for someone. I'd love it if you'd leave a comment (I do read every one) and would hope that you come back for another visit.
