30 Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 8

Happy Friday peeps!  What a crazy week, Aidan was off from school on Monday and Tuesday but we still had to work so the routine has been changed up.  For today's gratitude card challenge card I decided to combine it with the Fab Friday Color Challenge to create this fun and warm Thanksgiving card.  These colors are so fun today, it just screams fall.  The cardbase is Old Olive and I added a layer of Cajun Craze cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Lattice Embossing Folder and then matted it with Very Vanilla cardstock. 

Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the leaves from the Gently Falling stamp set.  I stamped the outline in Early Espresso and the leaves in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive (I stamped off to help mute the color).  I love how the 2 step stamps make coloring in images a breeze.  This piece was matted with Old Olive cardstock and attached to the front.  I added a piece of Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon and then tied a knot around it with some Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.  The final touch is the greeting from the Tags 4 You stamp set.  It was stamped with Early Espresso ink and punched out with the coordinating Label Bracket Punch. and attached it to the card with dimensionals.
The love how this card turned out and the colors are fabulous.  I'm definitely going to have to use this combination on other projects, so warm and calming.  I hope you enjoyed today's card.  You can play along with the Fab Friday challenge or the Gratitude Card Challenge I'm working on this month, it's a lot of fun.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
