My First Fall Card-EVER!

My mom asked me to make her friend a birthday card. Of course I said "yes!" enthusastically. Now for the challenge, make it with a pumpkin and fall colors. I haven't done many fall layouts, never mind a fall themed card. I was thinking this would be a huge challenge, but over the course of a few hours it all just came together, don't you just love it when that happens?!

 (notice the kitty peeking over the table? He thought I was taking pictures of HIM!)

Card base and layer was cut using Sentimentals. Pumpkin and leaves were cut with Every Day Paper Dolls. Envelope was cut with Cindy Loo. All were sized with Design Studio. I cuddlebuged the card layer, pumpkin and leaves, then brushed them with my Perfect Pearls Metalic powders. I'm really happy with how the card turned out and my mom was thrilled, so mission accomplished! Now it's off to figure out how to make a Halo (X-Box) themed card for my son's birthday.....hmmm.....

Hope you are having a great week!
