I made this card for the Creative Challenge. It was to make something that you are thankful for. This card is going to be sent out to friends and family (what I am thankful for) for Thanksgiving.

The card stock I used was Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron. I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the sentiment (from the stamp sets Celebrate Everything and Fundamental Phrases) and the background (Canvas stamp). I used Pumpkin Pie ink to sponge around the pumpkin to give it some depth.

Other materials I used were the Wide Oval punch (punched five times to make the pumpkin), 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon in Chocolate Chip (for the pumpkins stem), the 1/2" and 3/4" circle punch cut into a spiral shape to make the vines on the pumpkin and a paper cutter to cut the So Saffron card stock into "hay" pieces.

Thanks for looking!
