Itty Bitty Banners Thank You card

Good Tuesday morning stamping buddies. Just having my cup of Joe. It is supposed to be nice today but it sure is  dark out. I woke up so figured I would get up and cut up peppers and onions for salsa. I stamped this card last Sunday wanting to try the Core' dinations card stock from the Holiday Catalog and then I found a challenge to put my card in. Yippee! I have to get going to the dentist shortly so better not rattle on and get my chores going. 

On my card I used Soft Suede and the Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock that I had textured with the Square Lattice EF. I then sanded it down and made a couple of banners out of the Comfort Cafe DSP. Now, I would love to go to the Comfort Cafe how about you? Okay just kidding, well not really but I want to know where it is and who is going to meet me there.....LOL!
Alright, I cut out the Maple Leaf from the Autumn Accents Bigz Die and then with my Soft Suede marker I drew in the veins of the leaf. I crumpled it up a bit and attached it to my card with a bit of snail and then cut some of the Early Espresso Tulle Ribbon and wrapped and Antique Brad around it. I popped that up with a dimensional to hold it to my card. Then I used Cajun Craze ink and stamped the Thank You from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and then die cut it with the Bitty Banners and stuck a Mini Glue Dot on that and attached it under the brad. It was a very easy peasy card but I love the way it turned out. I hemmed and hawwed about buying this Card Stock but I love it. I don't regret that purchase at all.
