Stampin'Up!s Holy Family: A Simple Beginning

Today is a great day! It's my birthday as well as Thanksgiving. I'm not expected to cook today so I get to spend the morning card making!


Today's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is a KISS challenge, Keep It Simple & Sane.
I chose the Holy Family stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog. It is a beautiful image and perfect for a simple card. All the focus is on the image.

My colors are Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, and Very Vanilla. The only extra embellishment was the Linen Thread which I think goes well with the simplicity of the image.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

God Bless,
Recipe:
Stamps: Holy Family (#116513)
