Sweet Stamps Challenge #141 - Frames

Hello Friends!
Today is Tuesday and that means another challenge at Sweet Stamps!
This week the challenge is "Frames"
Stop by the Sweet Stamps Blog to link up and for all the details/challenge rules. I promise you'll be inspired.
I chose to make my frame in the shape of a window pane for my card this week. I shaded and distressed the edges of the squares and the blue matte.
I wanted a card that would be great for any occasion or season and the artsyfartsy set Trees & Leaves 2 Step set worked perfectly.
I added a wooden "thinking of you" banner along with textured ribbons and twine.
Thanks for taking time to peek at my card today and don't forget to link up your framed project!


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Papers:::StampinUP
Ink:::Tim Holtz, Ink Spots{linked below}
Ribbons/Twine:::3GirlJAM, Recollections, Sparkly Sweet Craft Notions
Rhinestones:::Recollections

Happy Thanksgiving Fall Card

To leave a comment about the Pinque Peacock Anniversary Prize Pack click HERE

Happy Thursday!
Thursdays are kinda like "my days" as in, my favorite days at Pinque Peacock.  I don't know why I always like to post on Thursdays, but I do.  I think this is a pretty cool card to share with you on a Thursday as well, because Thanksgiving is { ALWAYS } on a Thursday 
and I'm thankful that you're here!
I had fun with this card.  It's not all that elaborate, but it came together nicely.
I think that  fabric Pumpkin Die Cut Embellishment from Pinque Peacock 
had a LOT to do with it. 
Chevrons are so "IN" and Fall is so "IN" right now too.
I distressed and shaded the edges, layered the pieces at an angle.
Die cut the edge to make it appear as a piece of note paper.
Of course, I had to use some burlap and crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and a metal brad.
The sentiment is one from Studio G, very simple but I like it.
I hope you like it too! To see the Pinque Products up close and personal be sure to like Pinque Peacock on Facebook.  To follow the blog click here.  
There's always something happening and if you aren't a fan already you should be!
In case you're wondering what this last photo is...that's some sweet treats that I'm offering to the Facebook Fans of Pinque Peacock and also my 
Pinque Peacock is celebrating their first birthday in big fashion and I 
wanted to share in the fun.
To be eligible you just have to like them both on FB and let me know in the post HERE.

Thanks for coming by today...

I'm looking forward to entering this card in the following challenges:
