Popping Pumpkins!

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday and The Classic Card!

Wasn't yesterday just the most glorious fall day?  I love, love, love the cool crisp air and the blue sky and the leaves that are just starting to turn.   It isn't October quite yet, so I was quite surprised to see so many pumpkins popping up on porches when I went for a walk yesterday.  I usually wait until mid October to put my pumpkins out, but obviously I'm behind everyone else.  Guess I'd better get on it right away!

If you're thinking I might have a pumpkin card for you today, you are absolutely correct!  This charming card was made by one of my very talented downline members, Sara Miller.  Sara's cards are always among my favorites and this one is no exception.  Check it out...

Isn't that little popped up pumpkin cute?  And didn't she pick a great fall color scheme?  Of course she's smart and took the colors right from the beautiful Comfort Cafe Designer Paper (page 163 of the annual catalog).  The colors here are Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze, and Very Vanilla.  To make the pumpkin, she punched three ovals with the Small Oval punch (at the top of page 184 of the annual catalog).  They are sponged in Soft Suede to give them dimension, then glued together and popped up on dimensionals.  The twisty "vine" at the top is made with a very thin strip of Soft Suede card stock that has been curled with the bone folder.  The panels were cut with the Label Collection Framelits (page 191 of the annual catalog).  The "Happy Thanksgiving" sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes ( page 133 of the annual catalog) and punched out with the Word Window punch (page 183). 

Who wouldn't love getting a great card like this, come Thanksgiving?  I might make a few of these myself!  Thanks, Sara, for another fabulous card! 

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
