CCC #69... give thanks

Hello friends!!  Tuesday has arrived, again, and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge.   Wow crafters you really blew the design team away with all your fabulous black creations!  The creativity in the gallery was outstanding!  Looking forward to seeing what all of you come up with for this week's cue word.  And what is that cue word?  Brown!  We have a fabulous sponsor this week and our guest designer is the super talented Bev!!

 

Have to admit I struggled with the cue word this week, but I was rescued when I saw the layout for CAS(E) this Sketch.  I pulled out my PTI Notched Star Banner die set and got to work.  I die cut the bottom banner from some patterned paper, the top banner from PTI's Dark Chocolate cardstock and then layered them together.   A small banner was die cut from patterned paper using a Verve Flag It die and then stamped with the sentiment from the PTI Fillable Frames #7 set.  I layered everything up on a Dark Chocolate card base and then added a little hemp bow.

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see where this week's "brown" cue word take you!  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 , Tracey and guest designer, Bev!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI vintage cream & dark chocolate; PP:  My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Dies:  Verve and PTI; Hemp Twine:  Hempotique
