The theme over at The Outlawz Greetings challenge today is to use a pumpkin on your card.  Now I know it’s Fall/Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, but to me, here in South Africa….. well,  let’s just say that I am already all pumpkinned out!  Enough of those bright orange thingies on cards now!

Here is a card I made with a pumpkin ….. but it’s not a seasonal card :

I merged two precoloured images and added Stickles.  Once that was dry, I fussy cut the image, mounted it onto white CS, and started hand sewing on the star sequins. 

 I also added the silver braid (left over from a belly dance costume), sewn on orange sequins, and the sentiment.

I used a metallic bronze CS card mat and a white CS card base.
