Jojot at StampinB's Design Team gave the challenge this week to make a Thanksgiving/Autumn card. I used my Labels 3 die cut, stamped image twice, colored one of the pumpkins again and popped up. Used stickles and an argyle Cuttlebug folder. Sponged around the image in ice blue. I used pearls sent to me in a RAK from Pam 124. Thanks, Pam...they were just what I needed for the sentiment piece. Was going to use my Punch Around the Page Fall Leaf punch but I broke the corner part (my fault this time) and instead just used the Fall Leaf edge punch inside the card.
My card is a bit late but 'better late than never'.

Benz, love that paper for one thing and without those orange pearls from pam124, who knows how this would have ended up??? LOL!!! I'm glad you found some use for them. I LOVE your image and the pumpkin popped up just adds such dimension. Your coloring is wonderful and I love that ef and leaf punch. I can't believe you broke part of it. How did you do that? Isn't that a felony in Stampville? Are you going to the slammer?????? Actually, if I really do get this "so-called" sewing machine, you probably will be in the slammer as you must have stolen it!!! LOL!!! You better not get me mixed up in this trail of crime!!!! Wonderful job on your card Benz!! TFS!!

Wonderful T/G card! Love the way you layered the image by popping up the little pumpkin. Better watch out for that Pammy Fruitflake tho - imagine her trying to take credit for your wonderful card just because of those pretty pearls you used on it. And trying to send you to the slammer for breaking your punch - although she's right, to a Punch-a-holic, that's a pretty serious offence! :)
