Take Time

I'm back again with another card for you to see.  This time I wanted to use the sentiment from Dee's Designs again and paired it with Designed 2 Delights wonderful tree!  Over at Mel'Jen's Challenge Blog they are challenging us with colour - Brown and Orange, and at Designed 2 Delight to create a thank you or thank you gift for a hostess or anyone.  So this is what I put together.  I used some bright orange cardstock from Stampin' Up then adhered some polka dot paper that I added a lacy bottom edge to.  I used some wonderful ribbon from Stampin' Up and a leaf from my kids craft stash.  The button is from my collection and I attached it with some Elmer's braiding cord.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I distressed the cardstock around the tree and added some ink to the edges of the sentiment to soften it.
 I pray you'll find lots today to be thankful for.  For me, first thing this morning I woke up to more snow.  Lots of it and I am thankful for my wonderful husband who will be taking care of it for me!

Another beauty. I love the colors of fall. You've done a brilliant job coloring that tree. Fun leaf embellies, too. Thanks so much for playing along with us for the designer's challenge at D2D.
