You're the Pick of the Patch!

Hi Friends!
I'm back again today with a second post!  It's good to have a long weekend and an extra day to play in my craft room.  I saw the darling inspiration photo over at The Shabby Tea Room and thought I'd play along.  We were to use neutral colors and twine.  Easy enough, huh?  And, those pumpkins are so CUTE! 
Here is the card that I came up with...

I used a kraft card base.  I embossed the top and bottom of the card using a stamp from Paper Sweeties(Borders).  A doily, glitter circle, and pumpkins for the focal point.  The pumpkin stems were colored with copics and embossed with polka dots.  They were fussy cut and adhered with pop dots.  The sentiment is also from Paper Sweeties using the stamp set Sweeties Wagon.  To top the card off, I used lovely Paper Sweeties ribbon(Vintage Winter White).  And, a Tim Holtz button with twine to "pretty" up my card.

Ok, friends that's all for now.  Have a great day, hugs!
