Thanksgiving Squares

Good morning! This is another card I made for a clean & simple card swap that I just finished hosting.  I got the inspiration for these colors from all the pretty leaves that I have seen lately especially around where I live.  We're probably at the peak of our color right now and soon I'll be raking up the yard.

I used retired designer series paper, but this will work with any dsp and you can change this layout to make bigger squares, smaller ones, you can add a few more, or even make it your entire background.

I punched out 4 of the 1 1/4" squares and I placed them on my cajun craze layer.  I left enough room towards the bottom so that I could add my twine.  Then I stamped the leaf stamp and cut out 2 of the leaves and placed them right above where I knotted the twine. 

Lastly, I stamped one leave image in the bottom left hand corner and then I stamped my sentiment.  I love the CAS look of this card and how easy it was to make and I hope you do to.

Have a great day and thank so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll become a follower :)
