{You're A Blessing To Me}

When I sat at my desk today, I was determined to make a card without a colored image.  It's not something I do often, since I love to color, but I wanted to make an Autumn/pumpkin card using only dies, and this is what I came up with:

All of the dies I used are from My Favorite Things.  I cut three stitched ovals from light orange card stock to create the pumpkin.  I used the tail/backing die from the little bow duo as the pumpkin stem, cut from kraft.  I added a bright green bow that was embossed with a polka dot embossing folder (because all pumpkins needs bows, right?) and I added a dark green vine swirl cut from the small flourish die.

I used dies from a few the Blueprints 13 Die-Namics set, along with a circle from the Pinking Edge Circle Stax Die-Namics.  I stamped the sentiment onto a navy blue stitched label piece and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I finished off the pumpkin with a few dark orange enamel dots.

I'm linking up the following challenges:
