Grateful Heart

When I saw this on LeeAnn Greff's blog, I knew I had to try it and make it with a couple of changes.  Plus, since there weren't any instructions as it's a class she's doing, I had to wing it.  

I began with Very Vanilla (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") for the card base and Soft Suede (5 1/4" x 4") for the layer.  The "moon" is cut from the Circles Collection Framelits.  Not the largest circle, but the next to the largest.  I numbered mine from the smallest size out so it's #8 in my set.  I used Hello Honey card stock and used Tangelo Twist to sponge on some color.

The card stock behind the window is Very Vanilla 3 1/4" x 2 1/2".  I stamped the tree with the pumpkins from Happy Scenes and then colored the pumpkins with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Markers.  I used our Sponge Daubers with Tangelo Twist and So Saffron to add a little "sunset" on the horizon.

The window is attached directly to the Very Vanilla and then the whole thing is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Oh, and yes, I stamped the pumpkins and some falling leaves onto the Soft Suede and also the pumpkins onto Tangelo Twist and fussy cut them out.  Whew!  I like how it came out though, don't you?

Thank you for looking in today!
