I made the little center pumpkin by folding punched scalloped circles in half and gluing them together to give the 3-D effect. The little stem and leaf was ripped off some of my fake fall foliage I had laying around :0). The chipboard circle actually started out as black and white. I used a sponge and Ranger distress ink to turn it brown and better coordinate with the gorgeous Coffey background papers.
I decided to tie this card in with the Moxie Fab Challenge by adding a ruffled ribbon border above and below the center panel. I used a wire ribbon and just slid the ribbon on one side to create the ruffles. The ribbon is a nice copper brown and really shimmers IRL. Finally I added some 1/2 pearls in a nice coppery brown color to tie the panel and sentiment together.
I couldn't decide which picture I liked better so I posted both. I asked my oldest and he wasn't much help :0) I like the background in the first one, but I think elements of the card stand out better in the second one. Which do you prefer?
Well, hope the rest of your weekend is Just Right !!
