Give Thanks - CAS

Here I am - still making Thanksgiving cards to mail. CAS cards are perfect for mailing because they tend to be low profile without the lumps and bumps of bling.

A panel of white cardstock was stamped in challenge colors using a challenge sketch for the layout. The sentiment was stamped and adhered to a piece of green cardstock and popped up on foam tape for a little dimension. The inside was decorated with stamping as well.

The card is being submitted to two challenges:
1. Color Throwdown Challenge #417:
