It's time for another Color Challenge from the Pals Paper Arts.  Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crushed Curry – reminds me of Thanksgiving!

For my submission, I did use a Thanksgiving theme.

First let's look at the pocket on the fron of the card.  It comes from the Gratitude for days Simply Created Kit.  The kit is not only a way to express gratitude.  This kit can be used in many ways and today I am using it to create my card.  The A sentiment from Mingle All the Way is colored with Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers & then stamped on one of the Journal Cards from the Kit. A small piece of 1/4" Cotton Pumpkin Pie Ribbon is stapled on the card.

The Old Olive card base is embossed with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder for added texture. I like how the embossed triangles mimic the triangles on the front of the pocket.  

A piece of Crushed Curry Polka Dot dsp from the Flowerpot paper pack adds a touch of color and some much needed white space.  A small strip of Pumpkin Pie cardstock is placed at the bottom of the dsp in order to add my 3rd element of that color – the ribbon, the sentiment and the strip.

A trio of Linen Thread is wrapped around the card and tied off with a couple of Autumn Wooden Elements for some added visual interest.

 In addition to using a kit for cards, I also assembled a kit and I am using it to record what I am grateful for this month.  The best part is that I can get the same kit out next year and write on the same cards by just printing 2015 before I jot down what I am grateful for.    Actually, there is enough room on each card to do this for a number of years.  I think it will be fun to compare them over the years.  And when I am finished, they can go in a scrapbook.
