CAS-ual Fridays Challenge - The Long and Short of It

Today i have a card for this weeks CAS-ual Friday's Challenge. The challenge is to make a clean and simple 4 x 9 card. I like long cards, so it was just a matter of keeping it CAS!

I used PTI rustic cream card stock and used some pumpkin stamps from Verve. I stamped them in brown ink on the cardstock that was trimmed about 1/4 inches short of the cardbase. I stamped the sentiment So Grateful for You next to the pumpkins.

I used watercolor crayon's to color the pumpkins. I added just a touch of green glitter to the pumpkin leaves. Last i add a row of orange pearl like embellishments from the sentiment to the edge. Last i adhered this panel to the cardbase with pop up dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
