Count Your Blessings {SSSC169}

Hi there!  A new week brings another new and fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch!  I haven't been able to stamp much the last couple weeks because I was busy with my girls, so this sketch was just what I needed to get myself back into the stamping groove!

Before I get to my card I want to welcome this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Guest, Tracy MacDonald!  Welcome Tracy!

I pulled out one of my fave à la Modes from My Favorite Things, Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch, and got to work.  She was stamped on X-Press It Blending cardstock and was colored with Copics.  The pumpkin was stamped a second time and popped up for dimension.  She was cut out with Rectangle STAX Die-namics.  Sentiment Strips Die-namics make the sentiment and Simply Scallops Medium was used for the scallops at the bottom.  The Hot Fudge buttons were finished with some Hemp Cord.  Card base is Hot Fudge cardstock and the patterned paper is Harvest Lane by Simple Stories.

Detail Shot:

The finished inside.  The notched banners were made with the Fishtail Flags STAX.

The Die-namics I used:

Here's the sketch:
