A Thankful Thanks Challenge Card

Hello and welcome to my little blog space! I am so glad your here to view my next challenge card. I've recently been browsing some new blogs and decided to join in their fun (see below) I used lots of techniques for this card. I just couldn't stop embellishing!
First I used Mojo Monday sketch #317.  I LOVE this sketch becuase it leaves so much flexibility to use a variety of sized objects. I chose to modify the square sketch to fit an A2 sized card.
I won these challenges for this card

In addition, a few of the challenges required fall themes so I reached for my Authentique Thankful 6x6 paper pad. I used dry and wet embossing on the brown patterned strip of paper. I dry embossed and inked the pumpkins and popped up the center layer with some pop dots and added some faux stitching all around. I also added the raffia and the ribbon for some texture and softnests. 

Here's a closer look at all the embellishments.

Materials:
Cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder
Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder
Cuttlebug Baby's Breath embossing folder
Hero Arts sentiment stamp
brown ribbon bought by the yard from Wal-mart
Cricut pumpkins cut from Everyday paper Dolls cartridge

I just love making fall cards! They just seem to come easy to me unlike winter or Christmas themed cards. uggh! lol.
