Pinterest Inspired Pale Pumpkin

Good morning friends~ I made this card back in September and never got around to posting it until today when I saw the challenge going on over at The Card Concept where the challenge is using neutrals.

I started by dry embossing the card base using a Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folder. The pumpkin was made using 5 ovals cut out of parchment paper, using the Scalloped Stitched Oval die set from My Creative Time. I used MFT's Leaf Filled Flourish and Royal Leaves for the greens. I punched some flowers using Martha Stewarts Hydrangea punch and colored the centers using a Zig Real Brush Pen and added stickles to the centers to add a little texture. I purposely didn't add a sentiment so it could be used for any general fall occasion.
I used this photo found on A Homemade Living as inspiration

I'll also be adding this card to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
