Harvest of Happiness

It's a crisp, breezy fall day.  I was in the mood for stamping, and thought I'd better get my Thanksgiving cards finished and out in the mail!  
I couldn't resist the vivid colors for my background.  Stamps are from Printworks.  I am sad that they closed their business this year.  I was a fan of their edgy style.  This was a set of clear stamps with pumpkins and some verses, including this Thanksgiving verse.

I sponged a piece of Arteza watercolor paper with TH distress inks, then stamped pumpkins intermittently, filling up the panel, and overlapping.
I stamped the verse on patterned paper, layering it onto green then onto a gold panel with foam tape for dimension.  I used rectangle stitched dies for the panels. I added the whole shebang to a white A2 card.

A pumpkin charm with twine tied through, and some punched and colored leaves finish off the card.

I really love these little pumpkins, and these colors make me happy.  The leaves are almost gone from our trees, so I'm trying to keep the fall colors alive here.  We had our first 'real' snow yesterday. NOT a huge fan of that!  It's ok for a couple of days, but November through March is a little much.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
The Card Concept - Rustic fall
Dragonfly Journeys - Thanks and Thanksgiving
