CASual Fridays Thankful For You

Another busy weekend for us.. we got the carpet installed in the basement! We're hosting the Purdue Calumet Cross Country team for a pasta party and we wanted the room to look nice. I expect the kids will have a bon fire too if the weather is nice.

I'm sharing a card I made with CAS-ual Fridays"Calm and Gentle" set.  October is breast cancer awareness month so everything on the blog has a touch of pink to it.  That's ok with me since it's a color I seem to gravitate to naturally.  
This is an all season set - you can easily change the mood by changing the color of the leaves on the trees. I stamped them in orange, yellow, red and pink!

I cut the sentiment with a flag die and ran it across the trees.  I used burlap button twine to match the neutral color of the paper in the background. 
I trimmed the stamped tree image to a size that I thought would be good for the card front.  To keep it from getting lost I added a panel of hot pink behind it.  The corners were trimmed with a corner chomper. 

Some gold sequins from Pretty Pink  Posh make everything nicer!

You continue to amaze me with all your energy for home improvement projects. I love this card because to me it is classic Jeanne--so many bright and happy colors, and just the perfect amount of layering.
