I found a lot of paper scraps on my work area which I used to create the background on this card. Originally I thought it was just going to sit on my desk for just as long as those scraps did, but then I saw this sketch from Stick It Down.
All I needed to do was add a banner and create a focal point for the card front.
I grabbed an older pumpkin stamp from Stampin Up! and stamped a bunch on a piece of paper. I also stamped some on a different piece that I planned to fussy cut. I used a water brush to color the pumpkins; did some random stamping and added some brown color splash to add some more visual interest to the focal point. I love how it turned out AND I was able to use some paper scraps too!
I layered and adhered the three fussy cut pumpkins on the lower edge and used foam adhesive to the middle one to give that a little lift.
A banner punch with "thanks" stamped on it fits perfectly on the top and follows the sketch!
