Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.....
Can you feel Fall is in the air?

Somehow September just feels "different"...
Makes me think of apples, Mums, and pumpkins...
Puts me right in the mood to make a Fall card..
 
One of the things I love to do is try to think "outside of the box"
with my dies.
For some reason I kept looking at the Cheery Lynn Designs Build A Flower #3
and some of the flower petals reminded me of pumpkins!!
 
 
I went that feeling and created this "elegant" fall card.
I colored my pumpkins in with my Pan Pastels Flower Coloring Kit-Susan's Garden 
using the colors Diarylide Yellow and Orange.
 
The pumpkin leaves were made using the Cheery Lynn Designs Wreath Strip die
using the Pan Pastel colors Bright Yellow Green and Red Iron Oxide
to color them...
The pumpkins were "popped" up on an embossed background
using Crafts-Too you embossing folder "Leafy Tree".
 
Here is a closer look at the card, so maybe you can see the detail better.
 
 
I am entering this card in to the challenge at
and
 
I hope you have enjoyed today's post..see you soon!!
