Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

Just popping in quick with a card I made for a friend's birthday.
I've been wanting to use my BoBunny fall paper and did not want to cut the lovely sunflower, so I decided it's best to leave it on the card.:-)  Before this card, I first made some sunflowers with a punch, but quickly decided the pretty sunflower on the paper looks much better.  I stitched the felt leaves with pearl cotton.  And, the wooden pumpkin was painted with modeling paste and orange acrylic paint.  Lines were drawn on the pumpkin for added interest.  Twine, ribbon,  button and gems to finish off the card.

Ok, that's all for now.  It's a perfect fall day here.  The temp should be in the mid 70's today.  And, it's apple festival here in town today.  I'm looking forward to some great food, especially an apple dumpling with ice cream!:-)  Thanks for stopping by!  Take care, hugs!
