~ Elegant ~ Thanks (So Much) ~

WOW!
 It took me 
AND
LOTS
of other people to 
put this card together! 
AND
we did it while the electric 
took a vacation this morning.
So a lot of it was done in the 
DARK.
Wait! ~ 
a new technique?
When you can't 
see 
what you're doing?


The LOTS of other people you ask? 
Well, besides me, Faith at D2D (freebie pumpkin tag digi, progressive challenge), Gina K (freebie background stripes), and SU! (4 stamp sets, [Tiny Tags, Language of Friendship, Day of Gratitude, Delicate Doilies], plus 4 different punches and a lot of fussy cutting (in the dark mind you!).

Wow isn't that just GORGEOUS!!! Love the digi paper with the image and the popped up sentiment along with the leaves and flower is simply BEE-U-TEE-FULL! Don't think I would've thought to do with back and white for a fall card but I love how the pumpkins pop against it! I'll say it again, I LOVE IT!!! Keep'em coming!
Aloha, KL

Kudos to you for creating a card in the dark! I would be afraid of accidentally slicing my finger or something. You're a brave one! But what a gorgeous card this turned out to be! I love the little cluster of framed pumpkins and the cluster of leaf embellishments! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Papercraft Star! Well done! I can't wait to have you join us again!
