Thanksgiving Blessings - A Crafting Start

This my design team submission for this week over at A Crafting Start.  Make sure you stop by there blog and check out all the talented design team members creations for the week.  This week the topic is Punches.  This is the card that I designed using my circle punch.  I loved the way the pumpkin turned out and this card was so beyond easy.  And if you look down later in this post you will find the instructions for how I made it.  
A detail view of the pumpkin.

How I made it:

·         Punch 3 circles with 1½” punch out of orange card stock.
·         Edge the 3 circles with Tangelo ink pad.
