FF173 Punkin Pillow Inspired

Happy Tuesday, all!  A couple of weeks ago, I bought this 10" felt pillow at a church yard sale for fifty cents:

It was in a little rough shape, but I cleaned it up and put it on my chair as a sweet little fall decoration...I love it, especially for the price!  I got to thinking how fun it would be to re-create it on a card, so I went to work:

I started with the Fab Friday sketch:

I did not have any cardstock that was the warm tan color I wanted, so I brayered a piece of Very Vanilla with Crumb Cake ink (and wished I had gotten a little more even color), then using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped a little stitch line in Memento Black all around the edges.  My pumpkin is a past Close to My Heart stamp, inked in Terracotta Tile and stamped on the same color paper.  I markered in some stitching lines to mimic the pillow, then diecut some Mossy Meadow leaves, punched out some Crushed Curry berries, and added some stamped stitched lines for vines:

I also added a couple little "vines" below, diecut from Mossy Meadow as well.  My sentiment was stamped on Crumb Cake, diecut with a banner die and sponged with Soft Suede ink.  I added a birthday sentiment and greenery from Botanical Bliss on the inside:

I kinda like how it turned out!  Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
