LIM: Things That Move

I hesitate a little putting this card up because it is so simple.   I have been watching other cards in the Less Is More theme challenge which is "Things That Move" and there have been amazingly creative ideas.  It's amazing how people are constructing actual moving cards (spinners, sliders, swings) and managing to keep them CAS.  My falling leaves seem a bit simplistic!  But I do like CAS cards, particularly for sympathy - so here it is!!

  • Stamps: Penny Black leaves, My Sentiments Exactly sentiment
  • Paper: SU Crumb Cake, Black and Ivory
  • Ink: Versamark, black
  • Accessories: SU Antique Ivory embossing powder, pearls and narrow black ribbon
