Take Care for Queen Ruth

I was honored to be asked to me a Guest Designer for the Queen for the Day challenge this week.  Our queen is Ruth, aka RDey.  You can see her fabulous and extensive gallery here.  I chose her Spring card and turned into a Thanksgiving card.

Cuttlebug Mania's challenge this week is.  I've used my Big Shot to emboss the woodgrain background and stitching.

Less is More is asking for  String or Twine

Simon Says Monday Challenge is having an ANYTHING GOES challenge this week.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is also having an ANYTHING GOES challenge this week.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Take Care, Lovely as a Tree
Ink:  Cajun Craze, SU Markers (Baked Brown Sugar)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar
Other:  Stitched Mat Rectangles (Lil Inkers), Jute twine (Michaels)

I found this leaf all colored and cut out in my UFO box.  I honestly don't remember how I stamped and colored it. Wish I did!

Thanks for the visit.

Gorgeous autumn card! We're under major snow right now, so your card is especially day-brightening, as is your warm comment on my post! THANK YOU! Happy Sunday!
