Give Thanks in Color

Happy Friday! Oh man, am I glad the weekend is almost here! It's just been a crazy week. I made this set of cards earlier this week for the CAS (clean and simple) challenge over on SCS and this is the first chance I had to photograph them!

Anyhow, like the name of the challenge, these cards are no fuss, clean & simple. I wanted to make a set of notecards, so I used the challenge sketch and just changed the colors and the leaf on each card. Each of the backgrounds is randomly stamped with the leaf and berry stamps from the Harvest Blessings set and I also stamped one lone leaf in each color, cut out and attached to the front of the card. The ribbon is wide striped chocolate ribbon from SU! The verse is the 1 Chronicles 16:34 plain jane and I embossed it with chocolate chip craft ink and clear embossing powder on each of the Nestabilities Classic Rectangles shapes. Then I just added a few mats and a cream card base and all 4 cards were done, lickety-split!

What's In It?
Stamps: Harvest Blessings, 1 Chronicles 16:34 Plain Jane (Verve)
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Dusty Durango, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Dusty Durango, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip (SU!)
