Clean and Simple at Stamping Vacation

Hi Everyone,
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. We had a very nice time at my parents house... turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Yum! And we had a nice visit with my parents, my brother, my two nephews, and my nephew's girlfriend. So, back to business today.
I have a Design Team card for you today. This card is for the Clean and Simple Challenge at Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog.

This month you are challenged to create a Clean and Simple card using kraft and red cardstock with just a touch of lace somewhere on your creation!

Our Monthly sponsor is Mark's Finest Papers. And the prize is 4 sets of their December new releases and a $25 gift certificate!!!!
Here is the card I made.

I used Real Red CS from Stampin' Up, white and kraft. the stamp is from Mark's Finest Papers' Thankful Mums and Pumpkins Set.

Ink: Jet Black Stazon. I could not find a lace in my stash that worked. So, I crocheted this piece with a small hook and white crochet thread size 10. Here are some detail shots.

There is so much detail in this stamp. The set also has a large Mum stamp in it.

Challenges for CAS Mum:

Cute Card Thursday:blast from the past. I used challenge #114 No designer paper.

Paper Pretties: Clean and Simple

4 Crafty Chicks: Photo inspiration: I was inspired by the colors in the photo for my card. Red, white, kraft.

If the shoes fits scrap it: White with a splash of color

Have a great Friday everyone.
