Greetings and Happy Thanksgiving to all! This is my last fall project for the year. You might say I left the best for last....lol The mesh pumpkin you see here was purchased at a store call the Dollar General here in GA. I enhanced it's beauty with Spellbinders Sunflowers, CheeryLynn Leaf Flourishes, and CottageCutz Butterflies that were glittered with Recollection glitter. The banner was created with the scalloped Spellbinders banner die and I used some letters from cuttlebug alphabet dies I have. I hooked them together with jump-rings and then attached it to the mesh with the rings.
The little matching pumpkin easel card has the spellbinders pumpkin as it's base with three spellbinders ovals to form the pumpkin shape. I wanted to recreate the mesh pumpkin so I also embossed it with a design the looks similar to the mesh. More sunflowers caress the card. The sentiment was cut with spellbinders labels but I cut the fancy design off the edges to fit better on the card. Oh and before I forget the white berries are from the Dollar Store. I had seen them and thought they would make great snowballs for my cards but I love them so much I have been using them for other things. I put some stickles on them to sparkle them up.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I really appreciate it. See you in the Gallery!
