Grateful For You

This week my daughter was at riding camp and one night was a sleepover so my DH asked me out on a date.  They recently opened a Movie Tavern in the next town so he asked me to the movies.  If you haven't heard of the Movie Tavern, it's a movie house that serves real food while you watch a movie...the ultimate dinner and a movie.  I thought I was in for a night of either rampaging apes or freaky aliens, but he surprised me and took me to see The Help, which I would characterize as a "chick flick".  Anyway, to make a long story short, I wanted to show him my gratitude so I made this card.  Isn't it great when life and people inspire you?!

This card is my take on the CAS-ual Friday Challenge this week which uses a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping.

I stamped the bamboo image from PTI's Peaceful Garden onto a piece of Kraft cardstock I die cut with one of the Half & Half dies.  The Dark Chocolate cardstock was run through the cuttlebug with a Sizzix folder and both pieces were mounted onto a Rustic Cream card base.  I love these textures together.

On a personal note, I am grateful to have such a wonderful husband.  And if you're wondering, The Help was a fantastic movie.  It was almost as good as the book.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets - PTI Peaceful Garden, Half & Half
Cardstock- PTI Rustic Cream, Dark Chocolate, and Kraft
Ink - Dark Chocolate and Black
PTI Half & Half die
Sizzix embossing folder
