fall pumpkins

fall is definitely coming quickly... i know this because school will finally be starting on Tuesday. agh, TUESDAY! nooooooooooo! that means i'm back to teaching, no more vacation (not like i really had a "vacation," but still...) but also, i've been seeing hints of halloween and fall decorations, so i thought a fall card was in order.
i used the Indian Summer pack from DCWV, and isn't that purple patterned paper just gorgeous? i love the metallic MM alpha letters too... a bronzy feel, plus some gold DeNami Glitter for an extra little flourish. guess where i got that pumpkin? a felt board... you know those boards you used in elementary school--you stuck people, or letters, numbers, etc on them to learn how to count, or read... remember? well, i used one of those and just trimmed the sides(it's a tad bright for the rest of the card, but oh well, i like bright, and the orange grosgrain ribbon from M's balances it a bit) ...so here i am using felt for the "touchy-feely friday" 365 cards challenge, and i never thought i'd do something like this! hope you enjoy, thanks for looking, and have a great start to your fall!

Feels perfect for fall, and the bright pop of orange is really cheerful!
