Clean and Simple Thanksgiving Card

I really enjoy Clean and Simple (aka CAS) cards.  Plus they are usually quick to make and easy to make in multiple quantities.  When I make cards, I usually make at least two, if not 4 or 6 so I always have some on hand and some to give away.

This card only takes minutes to assemble once all the paper is cut!
