thankful thoughts of you - CTD116

Another card using the ColorThrowDown combo! Red Riding Hood Red, hmm I don't have my cardstock labeled so I am hoping this is Red Riding Hood Red or a close facsimili thereof. :O)
At first I kept saying, I really don't think these colors go together. But after I started playing with them, I realized, I could, as Tim Gunn says, "Make it work!" And I think I did! :O)
This card is very simply done and you could crank out several of these at one sitting if you were of a mind to. The RRR cardstock is cut 5 x 5" square. It's run through with an embossing folder. I have several Stampin' Up! ef on order. Maybe next week I can show them off. But for now I used another brand. You'll have to run it through once and then take it out, move the ef over a little (trying to line up the pattern) and put it back through again.
The Certainly Celery cs is 3.5 x 3.5" square. The very vanilla cs is 3 3/8" square.

After all is said and done, I may add a 5.25" border of very vanilla on the back as a matte. It looks like it needs that extra border to set off the RRR.
