Thanksgiving with Button & Bow - Paper Cutz

TGIF Crafters,

I feel so good to write a post for Friday. It means two off days are around the turn and there is a new challenge post at PaperCutz Challenge Blog. So, for this week, you need to create a Card, LO or Craft Project for Thanksgiving using Buttons & Bows and any color of your choice. So easy peasy!! Right??

I know you already have been making cards and other gift items for Thanksgiving. So, just add some buttons and some bows and your card is all set to play our challenge :).

My creation for this week is:

Here is one more shot:

And one more shot of that cute pumpkin :):

On a Raspberry Pink Cardstock, I stamped the pumpkin image in same ink several times to create a background. Than stamped the same image on Orange CS with embossing ink and dabbed with black embossing powder. The loops are from the same CSs and made using the double punch technique. Put a button with braided bow and add some handcut leaves in random fall colors to complete the look.

I am playing the following challenges with this card:
