Day of Gratitude with library clip

This is a case from a stampin up regional in Baltimore- I loved the idea of cutting up a piece of paper to make sections. The base is Cajun craze stamped with the large flower element in same color. I punched 3 tiny holes in the basecard to hide behind the crumbcake piece and strung the linen thread 3 times to make a connecting element and knotted it.

This is what the back looked like.

I cut the very vanilla CS to offset a little then stamped the images from Day of Gratitude set in crumbcake(leaf), olive (sentiment) and crumbcake then used expresso marker to make the acorn, and the flower is old olive and cajun craze markers. I pierced some of the pieces on the edges, and elevated all the pieces with dimensionals and fit the little library clip. Put the whole thing on the crumbcake piece and it was actually a clean and simple card style that I really like. I hope you do too.
