Luckily, my Hero Arts September card kit had arrived and contained some pumpkins, so I had a set that I could use for my card.  This is another card going to the Cards for Hospitalized Kids/Card Care Connection and I thought the sentiment that came with the kit was really fun.

I stamped my pumpkins and die cut them.  I arranged them and then added a little glimmer from my gel pen.  A little glitter seems to help everything :-)

I love how cleanly the dies cut around the pumpkin and elements.  I put the focal element onto a textured card base and the sentiment was heat set with gold embossing powder.

I adhered the big pumpkin directly to the focal layer, but popped up the smaller pumpkin with foam dots.  I did the same with the leaf.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Your pumpkins are gorgeous, Jaydee! I love how you added dimension with your coloring and texture with your gel pen! Great idea to use textured cardstock for your card base, too...Such a lovely autumn card!


Terrific idea to add a bit of sparkle to these it!

I can't resist a good pun, Jaydee, and I love the veins accented with the glitter pen.
