Pumpkinly Perfect Card

Pumpkinly Perfect Fall Card
Serendipitous Scrapper
Strolling though the grocery store today, I saw mountains of beautiful orange pumpkins. The smells and colors of Fall are warm and they make me so happy that I thought I would used them with a sketch challenge from Got Sketch.

The Sketch was Challenge # 147 which can be viewed here.

I created the pumpkin embellishment by using an old Sizzix die (remember when they used to be red, yellow and green?). It was the small green pumpkin.

I cut it once from green felt, once from orange felt.

The orange was a bit bright for the muted We R Memory Keepers papers I chose, so I used one of my favorite solutions for toning things down - I covered it with lace.  Sewing along the perforations left by the die and adding a vintage button were finishing touches.

A bit of hand dyed seam binding, more lace and a few vintage buttons and voila - Fall is lovely indeed.

Hope your day is filled with happy harvesty thoughts,
