Autumn glory ...

.... Good morning!  It's suddenly got warm again!  Yesterday, was warm, wet and grey, but today looks like the sun is out.  My card today is all about autumn, the warm rich colours, the falling leaves, the pumpkins (plenty in evidence on our sub) and the frosty mornings!!

Autumn Glory - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Serendipity - Quilted Pumpkin
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up - Mossy Meadow
Dies: Spellbinders - Leafy Squares (S4-332) #4, Squares Lg (S4-126) #6, Squares Sm (S4-128) #7
Accessories:  White Lustre Card; SU Card - Mossy Meadow, Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

I'm submitting this card to the following challenges:
I thought the falling leaves in Heather's card were beautiful,  so I decided to have some little one on my card.  I stamped this gorgeous pumpkin onto white card and coloured with Copic markers.  I covered the entire image with Wink of Stella clear to suggest a coating of frost - you should have seen the frost here on Sunday morning!  I layered the completed image onto some orange card and on green which was die cut with the leafy squares.  I used the "waste" leaves to accent the image.  On the inside I cut a mat of yellow and stamped the sentiment in green.  This is for my Thanksgiving card stash.

You can't really see the sparkle in the main photo, but if you blur the image when you take a photo, the sparkle is really visible!!

That's all for now.  See you soon.
