Paisley Pumpkin

I have been so busy with changes at work and with kids starting school, I have not been able to see straight- but I have been playing with what little time I have left with the things I ordered from the Holiday catalog- of course I wanted it ALL!  I was fiddling around with the paisley set and the dies and when I put the two paisley together it looked like a pumpkin- so here is the little card I made to showcase that.  The sentiment is from Suite seasons set and the little scallop on the bottom is just like one of the floral patterns from the Paisley & Posies set - I think it was just made for it.  I took Watermelon Wonder- I know but it reads pumpkin in real life next to the Emerald cardstock leaf-  as the base, added a layer of gold glimmer paper and then on Very Vanilla CS stamped the sentiment in Watermelon Wonder and Emerald,  glued the diecut paisleys as shown,  The leaf is from Rose Garden thinlits in Emerald CS. I auditioned several other leaves to see how it would look and this with its lacy look seemed most appropriate.
The stem is made using the little tree trunk from Thoughful Branches onto Soft suede. using soft suede ink.
Happy Fall, y'all!
