Embossed Pumpkin

Hello! Today I have another CAS card to share with you. I almost didn't use any stamps on my card but the back panel looked a little plain to me so I went with a weathered background stamp to match the squares of DP. The pumpkin was made with the SU small oval punch then ran thru the CB before assembling. The center oval is raised up for some dimension. I hand cut a little stem and then added the button cause I thought it could use a little something else??!! I softly sponged around everything with Really Rust ink to give it a more distressed look. I'm happy with how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by!!
