Pursuit of Happiness PP 172 (CAS)

November 19, 2013

It is such a beautiful Fall day!  I am so thankful for the weather in Georgia.  The Paper Players Challenge was perfect for a day like today.  It called for a Clean and Simple (CAS) card with leaves.  I know we all think of the traditional Fall colors for leaves, but I decided to step out of the box and do a card with a twist on Fall.  I chose Chocolate Chip, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade for my card.


Stampin' Up! Products:

Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Pool Party

Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Early Expresso

Stamp Sets:  Magnificent Maple, Gorgeous Grunge, Hello Lovely

Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Snail Adhesive, Paper Snips

Embellishment:  Linen Thread

Clean and Simple cards are difficult for me because I LOVE embossing and embellishments.
The great part is they are quicker to make and the tool list is short.  :)

Happy Stampin!


  1. This card makes ME happy! Love your color combination--looks like those leaves are falling from a Pool Party sky! Love how the leaves cascade down the card and the linen thread is just perfect! So glad you joined my challenge at The Paper Players!

    1. Thank you very much, Nance! I loved how the colors came together. It is so nice to receive your kind comment!

  2. Wow - your card really caught my eye - soooo pretty!

  3. I love everything about this card! The combination of inside and outside sentiments are perfect, as are the gorgeous leaves, grunge background and rustic twine. Thanks for joining us this week at The Paper Players, Claire!
