SUO....Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today's card was made using the challenge this week on the SU-Only Challenges Blog, which is Elegant Autumn.
You all know how much I love to make punched pumpkins at this time of the year and so I decided to try and make an "elegant" card using one. I started with a base of the Stampin Up Early Espresso Core'dinations     card stock. The next layer is very vanilla and then another layer of the early espresso core'dinations card stock that I embossed with the Lacy Brocade EF and then sanded with the SU sanding block. Love the look, so pretty and so vintage looking.
I then die cut with the lattice die and  more very vanilla card stock the lattice piece. It is attached to the base with some dimesionals, cut down to fir under the strips of the lattice.


The leaves are from the Stampin Up French Foliage stamp set. I stamped with early espresso ink onto some so saffron card stock and then cut them out with my paper snips. I then sponged the leaves with pumpkin pie, cajun craze and riding hood red ink. 
The pumpkin is made using the wide oval punch and the edges of  them are sponged with cajun craze ink.
The little sunflower is made with one of the flowers from the Boho Blossom punch and the center is the small circle that comes in the Itty Bitty Punch pack.
I hand cut the stem and the leaves are from the bird punch. I then curled a small strip of card stock around my piercing tool for the curl.
The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I hand cut the "v" shape in the ends and curled it a bit before adding it to the pumpkin.
