Cooler Weather...Wishful Thinking

I started this post last night but didn't get to finish it. It's blazing hot here. Yesterday the heat index was 105 and today it was 115. So when I sat down to make a card last night, I was thinking about cooler weather. And Joan's Garden Challenge was all about fall. Do a fall theme card using pumpkins or fall leaves with either embossing or glitter. So here's my card:

 I really love the way it turned out. Here's a close-up of the pumpkin with the Stickles glitter:

All the goodies I used:
Stamps: pumpkin image: Whimsical Autumn (Gina K); background: Ribbon Stripes (Gina K); sentiment: Strawberries (Flourishes)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie; So Saffron; Chocolate Chip; Tuxedo Black
Embellishements: 3mm pearls, 5 mm pearls, ribbon 

Check out Joan's Garden for some fun challenges and great supplies. Thanks for stopping by today. I'll have another post later tonight for another challenge.

Inky hugs,

wow Donna,

great card, very nice!
Our temps have been in the 80's, a bit too hot for me, I don't know what I'd do in 115, LOL! I'd melt away! Have a great day

hugs, Valerie
