Timeless Tuesday...out of the box

Well Timeless Tuesday was yesterday and I'm just getting out of my box to create this card for the "out of the box" challenge. Have to tell you, I had to study this one a bit in order to let's say...get it. Anyway I chose the set for Thanksgiving called A Season of Thanks or something like that. Love the Autumn images in this set and chose this vaase or vase or fancy bowl of veggies and berries to color up and use. My base card is that SU crumb cake color which is only peeping out about 1/8 " and I then went to a forrest green window like opened mat which is embossed with a fancy schmansy folder . Found some lovely damask type sleek paper to use behind my opening to set off the deep green and lovely autumn colors.Popped this up with some demensional dots. Added some soft willow green ( that's what we called it back in the day...willow) satin type ribbon and bowed it with the none other then Bow Easy. Used my Spellbinder's oval shape and to get me out of the box, I stamped and cut the bowl part and plastered it down. Fini!
Hope you are all off to a wonderful week and will soon have a happy weekend. Taking DGD to see Puss in Boots tomorrow as the kiddos are off school a few days for teacher's conferences. Fun times with the darling Ellie...love it.
