Day 16: Gilding the lily

What if we took pumpkins to a new level? That was the question in my mind when I made this card. Why not a serene, elegant-ish fall card just for variety? Let me know if you approve. . .or not.

To show this is not your grandma's pumpkin card, I stamped a green pumpkin image.
From there it was a short hop to selecting an elegant, baroque type of background paper. Punched out a shiny blue oak leaf! Finally, oh sacrilege, stuck some playful
blue "jewels" on the green pumpkins' frame.

It doesn't hurt to get a little playful when we make a card.

Yesterday was an awful day at our house. Maybe I'll tell you about it later. For now it's time to fix breakfast. (I hope the computer gremlins don't stick a time of 3 p.m. on this post. The time never matches reality.)
