Pumpkin Card

Well, I was busy the other day making paper pumpkins so I had to find a way to use them. This is one of the cards I came up with. The pumpkin was run through the Cuttlebug with the swirls embossing folder and then I lightly sponged the edges and the embossed areas with Chocolate Chip ink. The background paper isn't even background paper - it's wallpaper I rescued (?) out of a book of wallpaper samples that was about to be thrown out at the paint store. A lot of stores will give you their discontinued books of wallpaper samples, so don't be afraid to ask! Free is good! Finally, the flowers were made with paper flowers, some brass findings I bought on Etsy, and mustard colored brads I had in my stash. To finish it off I did some layering inside the card and added a little mini pumpkin. This card was my favorite out of the bunch I made. I just love the warm colors and the textures of the dry embossing and wallpaper and brass findings. This one might end up in my own stash instead of the my shop. :o)

I hope you're all having a lovely day today. It's gray and rainy here - the perfect day to do laundry and work in my craft room. I was hoping to get out in the garden to start dividing up some plants for my church's annual plant exchange, but alas - it's too soggy for that kind of work. Oh well - I guess I'll just have to stamp all day!
