PPA61....Grateful Greetings

Good Saturday Morning Peeps!!! Hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend!!

Today I have a card to share made with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week it is a sketch challenge.

The base of my card is very vanilla card stock. I used Cajun Craze for the next layer and the DS paper is from the Autumn Spice Speciality Pack that is the Holiday Mini.

I used the wide oval punch to make the Pumpkin. I punched the three ovals with pumpkin pie card stock and sponged heavily with cajun craze ink. I used some old olive to make the stem and the swirls are made with old olive and the Scribbles Swirls Sizzix die. I stamped the sentiment from the "Grateful Greetings" stamp set with Cajun Craze ink onto the very vanilla panel. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up and make it two lines instead on one.

I added some very vanilla satin ribbon, that I scrunched up along the top strip with some score tape. The end of the strip and the end of the ribbon is cut in a "V". I added a piece of old olive across the bottom with a punched edge. I like how this card came out and think I will make a version of it for my Thanksgiving name cards.

Well, that is all from me today thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
