Thanksgiving Invites for Flourishes

Well, I am back again with my third entry for the 5th Birthday party  challenges at Flourishes where it is a 'banner day'!   We are to use a banner or pennant style embellishment!

I decided to create my Thanksgiving invites which combine invitations to Thanksgiving dinner at my home with a Thanksgiving greeting. 

Thanksgiving is and has been celebrated for many years at our home for family and friends and is one of my very favorite holidays and traditions.

I used their "Autumn Flourish" set to create my banners and decorate the card.
Stamping with the leaf and acorn flourish on to very vanilla card stock which I then hand cut into pennants and layered onto black ones, also hand cut and threaded with black twine.

I then stamped my beautiful frilly leaf with the invitation from "You are Invited", I colored this with markers so that I could split the words.

I think these are the perfect quick but beautiful cards to send to my loved ones for 
our celebration this year.

Have you checked out the great celebration going on at Flourishes?
You have until August 31st to get your entry in, what are you waiting on?

I am also entering this at CAS-ual Fridays -clean or simple project featuring banners or flags. Love playing their CAS challenges.  

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon.

Card details:
Paper: Stampin' Up very vanilla, black, chocolate chip
Ink: TH distress ink, chocolate chip by SU
Other: Flourishes stamps "Autumn Flourish" and "You are Invited"

I love the earthy, fall feel of your card and how you have the design on the banner. Of course your inside is always as perfect as the outside. :)

Lovely idea for a Thanksgiving invite! I've always thought this set had the most unique images for fall.

I love the neutral color scheme of your Thanksgiving invites. The twine threaded banner adds just the right bit of texture while keeping the design clean and simple. Thanks for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
