Make My Monday: Autumn: Buttons & Ribbon

Well, it's been a wonderful November at Make My Monday!  I hope all my US peeps had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!  We've seen some seriously gorgeous projects this month--thanks to everyone who has participated each week!  This is our last week for our autumn theme, and we'd like to see some ribbon and buttons on your projects as well!

Here's my card~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~




I decided to go CAS for this one.  Plus, I got to use a stamp set that I purchased last month at a local craft garage sale!!!  If you want to see my steals from that shopping trip, click HERE.  There is some{ish} gloating...just warning you! ;)

This card is pretty self explanatory.  Paper pieced pumpkin.  Button flower with rhinestone centers.  An amazing bow (if I do say so myself) that didn't give me as much grief as bows normally do.  Some dry embossed lines.  And a sentiment.  Voila!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek--you rock!  Please join in this last week of fun autumnal challenges and don't forget to say hi to the other amazing DT gals, too!  Happy stamping! :)
