Pumpkin Thanks

Just a quick post this evening using the upcoming release from Verve, Grateful Elegance, available Wednesday, August 13. For the sentiment: I stamped the flower on scrap paper once, then on my circle to get a paler color. Then stamped the "thank you". I put the Spellbinder's die back in place as a template for the dashed border. For the scalloped border (Martha Stewart punch), I added a little cut out flower to every other peak. The background is also a part of this lovely set.

What's In It?
Stamps: Grateful Elegance (Verve Stamps)
Paper: white, close to cocoa, cool caribbean, pumpkin pie (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: close to cocoa, cool caribbean, pumpkin pie (SU!)
Accessories: punch (Martha Stewart); brads (Queen & Co); gel pen (Signo); taffeta ribbon (SU!)
