Be Thankful for the Little Things

We are having a cool breezy day so decided to make an autumn card today.  I just bought a beautiful "huge" mum plant for my front porch and it got me in the mood to pull out autumn things to decorate.  It's a little too early but I can start on my autumn cards.

The JustRite "Autumn Blessings" stamp set was used.  The background paper is from the "Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland" paper pad.  It has little pumpkins all over it.  The pumpkin design and border were stamped on ivory card stock and sponged prior to taking it out of the oval Nestie.  It was layered onto an oval of mustard cs.  Each layer is on dimensionals. 

I was going to add a bow, but wanted to do something different so punched out a Martha Stewart fence and sponged it with some brown ink.  It was layered across the bottom.  Some oak leaves were punched, scored, and sponged and just scattered around the bottom of the card.  Two Cuttlebug corners were cut and added to the top.

Supplies:  The Graphic 49 dp, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart border punch and JustRite stamps can all be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  The little leaf punch is something I have had for a very long time and it doesn't have a brand name.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Love the card! I really like the way you sponged the fence. It softened the look. It works great with that paper and image.
