"Thanks"

As I stated before, I love fall! I love the drop in temperatures, the colors and the beauty in the world all around me. So, I naturally love creating fall cards. This card is for a challenge at Joan's Gardens. I have really enjoyed playing the challenges there and  I have also shopped in her store. I highly recommend both to you. OWH Stars and Stamps. This is certainly a worthy cause for each of us to be involved in.  The image is from Stamping Up, I have had it for a couple of years and I love the versatility of the set. I cut it out and framed it with "Nestabilities" . I had several scrap pieces and used them. The green on the inside is the same green that is on the outside, but for some reason it looks different and it matches the green stripe, which looks blue! lol! I rounded the corners on each of the strips of paper. I added ribbon from SU and I pierced the corners of the card. I embossed each of strips and added two little rhinestones for a little bling! I hope this will be a cute way to say thanks to a new friend. http://joanscreations.blogspot.com/2010/08/joans-gardens-weekly-challenge-12.html and http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/

This is totally awesome! Isn't it crazy how the camera changes colors? It's a wonder!

Patty, Beautiful card. I love how the two background pieces of card stock leads your eyes to the focal point. Great card.

Thanks so much for playing Joan's Gardens weekly #12 challenge. It is so much fun!
