NOTE: The OLW for this week will be found on Cheryl's blog. I'm so excited about it!

Here's a simple gratitude card using Papertrey's Out on a Limb set.

The limb in this set MUST be grounded somehow, either by going off the edge of the card or by some other visual "anchor." It's too big to stand by itself. Without an anchor, the limb is just floating around on the card like some sort of ghost.  A ghost limb. Ohhhh, that's creepy.

In this case, a simple knot of sheer brown ribbon serves the purpose of anchoring the image onto the card, yet keeps the whole effect light and airy.

stamps: Papertrey Out on a Limb, Fall Elegance
ink: can't remember the brown, but the red is SU Cherry Cobbler
paper: PTI vintage cream
accessories: sheer brown ribbon


  1. Like this idea very much !

    Can use this for many occasions !

    Home made christmas cards will be so fun !

  2. Beautiful card, Susan. So well balanced (of course!), and I love the colour scheme.

  3. Great card.Love the look.

  4. I'd never have thought it possible to hang that branch out in the middle of a card. But you've done it successfully and elegantly.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
