Less is More...one more CASE Study Card + Addicted to CAS

Have you been to the Less is More Challenge  this week?  Go check it out...Stephanie from Clearly Besotted Stamps is the sponsor...oh she has such lovely stamps and I love her clean and simple style.  This week it is a color challenge:  lime green and black...now you have to have lots of white space, that is not to say it has to be "white" it could be black or green...just clean space!  I thought I would make one more card for the CASE Study Challenge and combine it with Less is More...so this is what I came up with.  Can you see the "thankful" die cut through the gingko leaves?  I sure hope so...

A sweet commenter told me to enter this card into the Addicted to CAS.  So I checked it out and sure enough..."friend" is the cue word...So why don't you head over there and check it out?

paper:  white stampers select
