Blast From the Past Blog Hop

I am so excited to be part of the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!
The Celebrate Life is just perfect for making a Thanksgiving card, which is what I worked on here. I stamped the pumpkin in black and colored it with yellow and orange copics. I then sponged around the edges with Momento cantaloupe, Stampin Up Close to Cocoa and Orange. I outlined that panel with a panel of orange cardstock and distressed the edges. I made my own designer paper to go with this image, stamping the leaves of this set with SU More Mustard onto mustard cardstock. The background panel is Close to Cocoa embossed with a wood grain Cuttlebug EF. I mounted that on orange, added a double ribbon and then used mustard for the card base. A sentiment on the mustard panel finished the card!
This one will go to my sister for hosting Thanksgiving!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
