Pumpkin Squared....

I could eat pumpkin pie as a round pie, or as pumpkin squares, or finger sized rectangles.... oh sorry, I've lost the plot, I'm not talking pies.... Pumpkin Squared is the name of the StretchNBubbles image that I've used for my card!  But OH! How I love pumpkin pie.... hot cold, with cream, without... whatever shape, I'llk eat it at any time of the day (I've lost the plot again!... this delightful image is in the SNB shop right now....


Ingredients: Cardstock - white cardbase, brown glitter, orange textured; Chalks - Pearly, Matte finish; Embroidery Threads;  Vintage Velvet Flower Blossoms; Brown Glitter Pen...

I decided very quickly, that I  had to stitch this image! I printed it in pale, and trimmed it to size.  I stem stitched the entire image, except for the little twirlies and the leaf veins, which are in running stitch.  I then use chalks and a tiny pompom to colour the image.  I cut layers of a rich brown metallic and orange textured cardstock and fixed three vintage flower blossoms through, before fixing it to the cardbase and adding some faux stitching around the outer.
