Fall Thank You, PP269 & MOJO421

Greetings, friends! I hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween yesterday. Scroll down for a photo of Ollie in this year's Halloween costume! 

Today at The Paper Players, the charming and wonderful Claire is our hostess, and she has chosen a Fall Thank You card as our theme challenge this week. 

For my CAS card, I had originally planned on some more autumnal colors, but while rifling through scraps of patterned paper I came across this little scrap and my color decision was made. The retired paper is Venetian Romance, and the stamp set is For All Things, both Stampin' Up.

I thought the tall and skinny layout at Mojo Monday would be perfect for my card. I tried these images in a circle but they just didn't look right because of the background stamp, so I substituted a rectangle. My card measures 5 1/2" x 3 1/2". 

Products Used: (All Stampin' Up)
Stamp Sets: For All Things
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Patterned Paper: Venetian Romance
Ink Pads: Soft Suede, Pistachio Pudding
Tools: 3/16" Corner Punch
Accessories: Neutrals Candy Dots

Here is the promised picture of Ollie in his Halloween costume, a dinosaur. He wouldn't sit still for the last photo and it was pretty fuzzy, so I thought I'd share a new one. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by! Please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players, and we hope you'll play along, too!

Inky hugs!

Mmm... I can't see myself trying to put Charlie in a Halloween costume.... I don't think he would like that. If I did... it would have to be Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon :-) The photo of Ollie is priceless :-)

I love the subtle colors of your card, the neutrals are relaxing and soothing and such a welcome change from the strong colors generally found at this time of year. Fabulous, my friend
