Challenge Entry: "Give Thanks" Card


Having more fun with Challenges.  
I put this card together using the pumpkin SVG file from my "Fall Set"
(available for sale--click on tab above or to the right for link to stores)
I cut the pumpkin using the file, SCAL and my Cricut and then added
a good coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the orange parts.
Once it dried I bent it and cracked it. 
Then added Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make the cracking stand out. 
I borrowed the 7 Gypsies Border Punch (from the Paper Squirrel while she was visiting) and followed her example to use it to add the ribbon.  Pretty cool!  (saw the punch set offered on Peachy Cheap today and went to get it but it was sold out--bummer!  I'm sure I can reproduce the punches using what I have)  I stamped the sentiment with brown ink and then went over it with clear embossing powder to make it pop.  Hand drawn stitching on the sentiment paper.
