Today's card is a blend of new and old.  I had to showcase these gorgeous pumpkins from Autumn Splendor.  You can only see one of the tendrils on each pumpkin because I paper pieced them and then popped them up, but each pumpkin has three tendrils.  It's really a gorgeous image!  I colored the patterned paper a bit for the leaves, stem and some shadow on the pumpkins.  The bit of old is the sentiment from Greetings and Salutations.  You see, I have a friend who is not well and I felt compelled to make a card from her.  I hope that when this reaches her, she is well on her way to health!
 
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by and see what Tangii has for you today!  Oops, I nearly forgot to say that I borrowed my sketch from Card Positioning Systems
