Thanks so very much

This card was a lot of fun to make, done for a customer who is having a September wedding and she would like thank you cards for her wedding party. Her decorating includes pumpkins in blue and ivory with gold accents, so I thought I would incorporate that into my card. I started with the beautiful stamp set by Altenew called Birch Land. It was the first set I bought from Altenew, and certainly has not been the last. I stamped the tree in black and did some masking to add to the tree on both layers. I then stamped the leaves, and did the brushing on of the green using my Clarity Brushes, which I love!  I die cut the pumpkins and sponged on the blue and used gold Wink of Stella for the stems, styling and adding on foam dots for a couple of them. I stamped the sentiment, then attached the top layer on foam strips, adding Nuvo Jewel Drops to finish. I have given this card to Carol and she is very happy with it, so I can share it with you now. Thanks for visiting today.

I actually like those blue and white pumpkins....they'd look nice on a card any time of year for any occasion. Very pretty.

Oh, Kia, what a gorgeous card, and I'm so glad the bride loves it -- no surprise there! What beautiful colors in the tree, and I love the pumpkins in white and blue. And I love your sponging and the Nuvo Drops. How brilliant to create these, sweet Kia! Hugs! xoxo
