A simple Autumn card.....

Hello everybody: Hope your weekend was great, enjoying the beautiful Autumn colors that Mother Nature gift us with every year.
I have a simple card I made using some of my favorite papers from Lili of the Valley.  I did very little stamping and coloring, I kind of let the DSP do this for me this time.

I like the effect of this two papers together, the snippet on the cross stitched die cut is the same as the panel on the left, only the background color is different. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Vellum with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. A little linen thread bow is all the embellishment on this card.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "A Season of Thanks", the little pumpkin is from a Verve Stamps set called Bountiful Harvest, all of this images are absolutely adorable.
I colored this little pumpkin with Prismacolor pencils.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

A Gem of a Challenge #180 "Autumn Color Inspiration"

"Less is More" Recipe "Acetate or Vellum" I chose Vellum.
AAA Cards Challenge #76 "Masculine"

Thank you for stopping by, I read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate this more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
