Thankful Pumpkin - Friends Of SpeedyTV Challenge #5

Hello everyone and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!  This week the Friends of SpeedyTV are challenging you to come up with Free for All Holiday Card.  I chose a Thanksgiving card and started out with a pumpkin shaped card, sponged some Stampin Up! pumpkin pie ink around the edges, and then added some Debbie Mumm designer paper I had in my stash. 

I then stamped my images using Mark's Finest Papers A Heinrich Company's Country Thanksgiving set stamped in memento tuxedo black ink onto corn husk card stock and then colored them with prismacolor markers before cutting out the sunflowers and one pumpkin/sunflower combination image to pop up later.  After punching out the main pumpkin and sunflower image, and matching artichoke mat layer, I added some white dots along the scalloped edge before adding the entire thing to the center of the card.  Once that was done, the sunflowers were layered across the top, popping them up using pop up glue dots and pulling the edges slightly up for added dimension.  The final sunflower image was then added to the main centerpiece also with a pop up glue dot before adding Making Memories page pebbles to all of the centers.  Here's a close up of the center panels.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
