A bit of fall for PPA

I thought I'd take a bit of a break from Christmas cards today...all that red and green gets a bit old after while, you know?  I have a workshop next week and I think I'll use this Thanksgiving card for it.  Unlike all of you in the US, our Canadian Thanksgiving is just over a month away, so it certainly is time to get going on some projects to celebrate!  This card was inspired by this week's sketch at Pals Paper Arts.  Here is the sketch...

Here is my very fallish Thanksgiving card:

Thanksgiving card for PPA107 using the Day of Gratitude set with sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inside of card using a sentiment from the Pursuit of Happiness set.

I really do love fall colours...guess that's why I got married in October!  There is something about the combination of early espresso. more mustard and cajun craze that just soothes my soul...so warm and earthy!  This card is pretty straightforward, though I'd like to point out one very important feature:  there are NO embellishments!!  Yay...I did it!  I created a card that doesn't look naked without any brads, ribbon or pearls!  Let me tell you, the thought certainly did cross my mind to add some hemp twine or early espresso ribbon, but I resisted the urge...are ya proud of me???
Tomorrow its back to Christmas...I had my first Christmas Club meeting on Thursday and need to get in the zone!

  2. I love the colour combo but thought it was Night of Navy not Early Espresso! Both work for me!
