Thankful CQC & CASual Friday

We took advantage of an extra day last weekend to head up to Los Angeles and visit this little vehicle at the California Science Center.

A few friends took their dear children out of school to see the Space Shuttle Endeavour when it arrived in Los Angeles and, after watching the news footage, I really regret that we didn't go up for that once in a life time event.

The exhibit is free (although you do need a time ticket) and really worth adding it to your things to do in Los Angeles list.

Today is the first day since the weekend I have had a bit of creative time, so I took a look at the challenges I still had time to participate in and decided I was going to combine the CAS-ual Fridays CFC78, Colour Q cQc#163 and Simon Says Stamp Thanksgiving/Thank You challenge on a card.

CFC78- Create a Clean And Simple project that has something torn on it.
Tear that cardstock, designer paper or even felt. Get creative and tear it up :)

Given all of the above, this is what I came up with:

The washi tape is from We R Memory Keepers and 2 strips are torn and added to the card base. Several sizes of the MFT Royal Leaves die-namics are cut in green felt and layered on the left side of the washi.

The "thankful" die and sentiment are both PTI - designer paper from the Authentique Thankful line and Memento Toffee Crunch ink round out the supplies.

Thankful is adhered with dimensional foam to lift it above the felt leaves. I love that the dies leave a vein impression in the felt!

Thanks for stopping by,
