CCC #63... give thanks

Hello friends!!  Happy Tuesday to you... hope your week is going well!!  And since it is Tuesday that means it is time for a brand new cue word!!   Loved all the fun arrow inspired projects that filled the gallery.   With fall now here our cue word is "autumn".   I know there will be tons of fabulous autumnal projects this week!  Our special guest designer is super talented LeAnne!!   All the challenge details can be found here.




The layout for my card is based on the current sketch from CTS.  Instead of going with a rectangular shape shown in the sketch I decided to die cut a leaf from burlap.  After die cutting the leaf I crumpled it up a bit to give it more dimension.  To give my card a bit more of a rustic feel I embossed the rustic white cardstock piece using my woodgrain embossing folder.  The sentiment, from the Reverse Confetti set "Forever Fall" was stamped using Rich Cocoa ink and die cut using a MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die.   A bow was made using a piece of red twine and then adhered to a tiny clothes pin.  The clothes pin was attached to the banner and then the banner and leaf were adhered to the embossed piece and mounted on a kraft card base.   Since I used Reverse Confetti stamps for my card I'm going to link this up to this week's RC Fetti' Find list.

Thanks for stopping by...I cannot wait to see what fun "arrow" ideas all you super talented paper crafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, LeAnne

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Kraft & Rustic White; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  SU! leaf die; MFT Fishtail Flag Stax die; Ink:  Rich Cocoa; Burlap:  PTI; Twine & Clothes Pin:  Funky Junkie
