The Splendor of Autumn...

Hi there!
I was inspired to do a fall project to enter over at  The Shabby Tea Room.  Aren't those adorable pumpkins in the inspiration photo?  We were to make a project that was 3-D or a shaped card.  I made a shaped card...

Lots of Paper Sweetie goodies on this fall pumpkin card.  I started with a SU shaped circular card base and covered it with felt.  I colored Sophie with copics and die cut her using the coordinating die.  Her outfit is from the stamp set Giddy Up.  The sunflower and small pumpkins are from the set Stand Add-on: Fall Harvest.  The large pumpkin from the set Stand-Add-on: Scarecrow and coordinating die.  And, the sentiment is from the set The Splendor of Autumn.  The grass was made using the Paper Sweeties die Sweet Cuts-Thanks Snow Much.  The last two items used from Paper Sweeties is the Green Apple ribbon and the Gold sequins.
I'm sending this card out to my hair stylist, Candy.  She loves to garden and be outdoors with her flowers.  And, her birthday is next week.  I hope she will be pleased to receive this happy mail!  Ok, that's all I have for now friends.  Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care and have a great weekend!

  11. Hi Maria, my new crafty pal! I am sorry to be late in leaving you some love. Unfortunately I've been dealing with a severe arm injury the last few months, so sometimes I need to step away for a few days. :( I'm happy to be here now.

    Your card is delightful! I love the felt.. it's so warm, inviting, and textural. The scene you created is equally sweet and I love the stem and curlicues! You are such a talented cookie. :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
