FTL159, CFC21 - Warm Thoughts

Wheat, Kraft and Squash - 3 monochromatic colors linked together with dark brown - makes me happy and meets the requirements for the current CAS-ual Friday challenge!!  Layout is from the Clean and Simple Blog.
The flowers are from the amuse|studio Clever Girls stamp set and sentiment is from Ooh La La!  It is fun to mix match images/sentiments from different sets - usually I am drawn to "printed" looking sentiments but the flowers and color palette made me lean toward the "script-y" look for this card.
The middle die from the scalloped border die set and some pretty brown pearls finish off a card that is very simple and straightforward but seemed to cause me no end of grief and consternation while it was being constructed - don't ya hate when that happens?
All supplies used in this card are available in my online shop  - 
Corey is happy cause the Bills and the Lions won today - here is a Corey quote -  "I picked them from last year so it's not like I'm on a bandwagon or anything".  I personally do not get the fascination with football at all - in fact when someone asked me recently about Fantasy Football I told him that, "my fantasy is that there would be no football".  However, I'm going for the Patriots this year cause I think Tom Brady is cute - and cute is what counts in football, right??
