Fall Thanksgiving {PPA 115 challenge}

Well hi everyone.  I've been out the country and out of blogland working in Mexico, so I was happy to get back in time to be able to play along with the Pals Paper Arts challenge 115 this week.  The theme is Fall/Thanksgiving, and here is my card.
 I started with a Cajun Craze base and added some yummy "Spice Cake" DSP for the background. LOVE that DSP!
I used a masking technique on very vanilla for the pumpkins from "Autumn Harvest" using Cajun craze, pumpkin pie and more mustard inks. I little filling with a blender pen and a few more leaves stamped in the wind. The "Hand-Penned Holidays" font is one of my favorites and stamped that in early espresso ink on top of the images. Seems to be blowing in the wind as well.
I doubled matted the very vanilla piece with a pool party mat and added a snippet of pool party ruffle ribbon with a leaf brad from my stash. Then added to the card with a few dimensional to pop it up.
I hope you like my Fall/Thanksgiving card.
