Timeless Tuesday...natural

Today's TT is to go au natural...Yikes does that mean no make-up?? That is super scary for most of us plain jane gals and I for one am not digging such a dreadful showing...but wait a second cause we're doing a card not our face and I just let a big breath of relief ooze out. I chose the set Season of Giving ( I think that's the name) because it can serve as a Thanksgiving card for an old buddy back in Michigan. I chose just a plain craft color for my base and a bit darker brown for my embossed side piece then used a piece of beige-tan marble for my image. No coloring since it's supposed to be natural. Added some dark brown chiffon ribbon and the phrase for Thanksgiving and guess what?? I'm done here. Love the folder on this one as when I embossed it took part of the paper and turned it into an almost whiteish color on the raised part. Neat me thinks.
Golly Moses it was so dang cold here last weekend I nearly froze my tushy off but no such luck, the fat remains! Our football team for Billings Catholic won the semi-final game 52-0 and those poor guys were playing in temps about 10 degree weather. Baby it was COLD!
This week we see the championship game and it will be played here in town and they are predicting around 50 some degrees. Yipee! I can handle that and will join the crowd to cheer our kids on. Happy week fellow stampers.

Go Rams! Yeah, fifty degrees!
What a totally natural card! You win the extra special natural card prize, Rubbermaid! Grand surprise finding the white showing through when embossing was finished adds to the natural twinkle your card shares with any buddy, Pat. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all yours in Big Sky Country and the Rocky Mountain West. Sharing your lovely card TT with friends along the Mighty Merky Muddy Musselshell Mississippi River Valley who have experienced a summer of flooding, winter of house fires, summer of roiling running forest fires and a long season of recovery...we are thankful. mt23stamperatyahoo

Love this "natural" look. The card turned out beautifully! And I've seen your picture, and I think YOU are a "natural beauty" too! Hugs, Curt
