Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: 3-D

This week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, the Challenge is 3-D, in any way or any form...so I decided to go 3-D with my pumpkin here! The inspiration came from my own garden this year, I've tried for 4 years (unsuccessfully) to grow pumpkins and one disaster after another, I never got them grown until THIS year...and unfortunately I put them next to our mobile home (before I found out we were getting a modular) and THIS year I had an EXCELLENT pumpkin crop...which I had to remove YESTERDAY (so we can move current home to put new one in), but I did get some really beautiful pumpkins out of there first...really BIG ones, I'm talking your $15 pumpkins...BIG ones...LOL

Anyway, since I had pumpkins on the brain I decided to do a pumpkin card... let's discuss the pumpkin itself...it's made of 6 circle punchies, I folded in half and glued to each other...now this will work with any other die or punch as long as it's the same on BOTH sides (for example, a star YES, a vine or an animal probably NOT)
The text paper I created with Word and just repeated Fall Blessings and Happy Harvest and cut that out with my Nestabilities.
Our sponsor this week is our very own Nikki with a fabulous Stampin Up prize for our winner (i have the same stamp set and love love love it!)
Thanks for joining me today!

I love your little pumpkin idea. Your card makes me really ready for fall. I also love the idea of making your own text background.
