Patchwork Pumpkin Card

Hello Everyone, I promised myself I wouldn't start any Autumn projects until after Labor Day.  Our summer's are to short,  in my neck of the woods, to spend any time on the "next season". But today it sure felt like fall. The sky was so gray I need lights on to get any work done and with a high of 62 wet degrees, I sure didn't want to be outside. So here is today's card.  I saw this in the September issue of Cardmaker. I knew I would love to make this card. It incorporates my two favorite hobbies,  papercrafting and quilting.

I used the paper pack from DCWV called Amber Autumn. The leaf was cut from the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year. I inked the edge of the very vanilla cardstock with Always Artichoke. The pumpkin edges were inked with Pumpkin Orange, both from Stampin Up, I embossed the pumpkin stem with the Cuttle bug folder With Love Borders, I used the flower stems. The leaf and a pumpkin piece were embossed with CB Snow Swirls.  The sentiment is from Gina K.Designs stamp set Thanksgiving.

Here's a close up of the pumpkin.

I plan on redoing this card with Straw colored raffia and a different card design. I'll post it on day 8 of my next seven day series.
Always, Jana
