I saw directions to make this pumpkin in the latest Card Maker magazine. In the instructions it said to cut 20, 5/8 x 12 inch strips. Okay, I did that. Now when I went to make the pumpkin after punching the holes, that was way to many strips, so I used 9 strips and it worked so much better. So now I have enough to make another! And since I've just given this one away, that's what I'm going to do.
I sponged brown and yellow inks on the bigger leaves, the smaller one is a leftover from another project.
This may qualify for the CC444 challenge, but I'm not sure. The colors aren't exact, so I did not use those keywords.

I love, love, love your pumpkin Jennifer!!! For some reason I seldom do projects like that. I get frustrated when I can't pick something up real quick. Perhaps if I did it once, then I could make more. Absolutely adorable and would be fun to experiment with all kinds of papers and colors!! :>)
