Fall Anniversary

I have had this pumpkin stamp from Eureka for a couple years and just haven't been able to get it to look like I keep envisioning. I think I did pretty good this time, at least I like it.
I used my SU markers to color in the stamp, Pumpkin Pie on the pumpkin and Old Olive on the leaves. I misted the stamp just once and stamped it then cut it out with a labels nestie. Before I removed the die, I sponged Distress Old Paper on it. I layered that on a different label die in Artichoke CS. The DP from Hobby Lobby was layered on Red Riding Hood CS that I wrapped my great rafia lace arount. I stamped happy anniversary (Dream Impressions) on a smaller label die in Artichoke ink and did the sponging again. It's all topped off with a rafia bow. This is a 5 x 7 card.
I'm doing a lot of my cards that size, I was lucky to have received a BIG box of envelopes from a friend's mom who worked at Hallmark and 90% were that size.
