grateful...thankful...blessed...

Hello!!  Haven't been in the mood to do much crafting lately so the other day I just decided to make something and see if that would kick my creative funk out the door!  It worked... sort of, lol!! I did get two cards made and I'm sharing one of them today.  This is for the new Color Throwdown, Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenges.  Fall is in the air I cannot wait to get me some pumpkins!! I absolutely love pumpkins!!! In the meantime I created a card with a pumpkin on it!  Last year I purchased the Reverse Confetti Pumpkin Patch stamp set and the matching dies after pumpkin season had passed so this is the first time I have actually used these stamps and dies.  I inked up the pumpkin with some Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe, the leaves in SU!'s Coastal Cabana and the stem and curlicues in SU!'s Smoky Slate.  Everything was die cut with the matching dies and then I got to layering up my elements.  A couple of strips of patterned paper from an older Webster's Pages line called Family Traditions were cut and adhered on my white panel.  I put together my pumpkin and adhered it with foam dimensionals.  The panel was adhered to a light grey cardstock base and I was done.  Clean and simple pumpkin perfection, lol!!! 
 




Hope you have a wonderful day...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog, white; Patterned paper:  Webster's Pages; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Hero Arts and Stampin Up!
