Give thanks.....

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap 
and I am so excited to be sharing another project with you all!

Today is the last day to enter our current challenge so I wanted to share another card following the challenge and motivate you all who may be thinking about entering to get those crafty goodies out and play along!!! 

This is the current Trendy Twine Challenge 
Fall Foliage Recipe:
Autumn or Thanksgiving Theme
Fall Foliage (Fall leaves, flowers, branches)
Trendy Twine**

 and here is what I came up with.....
I LOVE making CAS (otherwise known as Clean And Simple) cards so for this card I used a leaf die from My Creative Time to die cut the image out in the center of my card. I did stamp my sentiment onto my card first so I knew the position of where to die cut my leaf. Then flipping my card over onto the back, I used some red line tape to outline the leaf.
Now comes the fun part...I cut pieces of the Orange Truffle Trendy Twine  and laid them side by side to fill the entire image. Then when you flip the cardstock over you have your die cut image filled with the beautiful Trendy Twine!
Here is another view of the leaf die filled with the twine..... Not only does it give the card a pop of color but the texture it adds is AWESOME too!!!!

Trendy Twine Products Used:

So there is my inspiration!
