Dies R Us ~ Autumn Blessings

Good morning friends~  It's my turn  to post over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and it's all about fall.
The temperatures have turned much cooler here, the leaves have started changing color and are already falling from the trees.  
Here's a festive fall card to get you in the mood for pumpkin season.

I started by coloring some water color card stock using Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders.
From this sheet, I cut the lovely Maple Vine Frame from Tutti Designs.

From the second sheet, I cut 5 Stitched Ovals and layered them to create a pumpkin.
I then snipped off a piece of the scrap water colored card stock to create the stem.  I simply colored it using a brown Sharpie marker.

 Next, I cut some maple leaves using Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Leaves and played around with placement ideas.


I played around with placement and different colored card bases 
 And finally settled on the design below.  I thought the light blue background made all the colors really come alive.

Here's a list of supplies you can find at Dies R Us:
