Thankful...for Friday

Happy Friday!  

That means Stamp Simply time, 
*and* more importantly... tomorrow is 

Today's Stamp Simply Challenge is back to Nature...I love how open these challenges can be.
I decided on a fall color palette since it's everywhere you look lately!

I have always loved these simple little wheat grass looking like grass- so I bundled a little piece up for my card.  I used Curry and Espresso for my colors with a hint of KRAFT! ;) love my Kraft!  I really wanted to add a bit of zing, pearls or some rhinestone, but wasn't sure if it would work with the theme-

The sentiment is from the September KOM and the dies are from Spellbinders™ Pretty

Anyone is welcome and invited to play!  SCS Keyword is ssnotime160 for those who upload at SCS.
