Welcome everyone.  Today at The Shabby Tea Room, the challenge is about neutrals and a card or project inspired by this photo…

I reached for some rose gold glitter paper and cut a pumpkin in segments…

I used a finger dauber and some distress ink to ‘shade’ one side of each of the segments.  The center segment was shaded on both sides.  The pieces were glued in a pumpkin shape, on a folded card stock base.  When the glue was dry, I cut away the excess of the folded card stock and then added the stem…

I hand cut a leaf in white card stock, taking my cue from the photo.  The idea for the white tendrils, also came from the photo.  Before adding some score lines, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Paper Sweeties.  It’s from a very handy set called ‘You Are Amazing‘.  A few amber rhinestones found their way onto the leaf as well.  This is a very clean design and  I think it will look lovely as a Thanksgiving decoration in my home, as all of my decorations have a classic and clean look this year.  You can see a leaf wreath that I made a few days ago HERE.

I love the look of the inked edges on the pumpkin segments.  It adds contrast and a rich vintage touch…

This pumpkin stands up with ease.  A set of these, slightly reduced in size would make wonderful place cards to be used from year to year.  An extra stash of leaves would allow the names to be updated as needed.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

 

Sending you blessings and ((hugs)),
