Card Sketch Challenge

Good Morning!
Yesterday, while planning my Punch Class for tonight, I decided to use Beate's Weekend Sketch challenge for my last card. If you sometimes struggle with the layout of your card - this could be helpful to you also! Here is what the sketch for this past weekend looks like:

And, here is the card I came up with...

I made my card base with Tangerine Tango (a new in-color!) The bottom layer is a strip (4 1/4" x 1 1/4") of Haiku Designer Paper layered on So Saffron. The next layer is a strip (2" x 3 3/4") of Haiku Designer Paper also layered on So Saffron. The top layer is a 2" x 3" piece of Very Vanilla layered on Tangerine Tango. The pumpkins are also Tangerine Tango and I used my Large Oval Punch and sponged the edges with Creamy Carmel. The stem is done using the Horizontal Slot Punch and Chocolate Chip cs. I made the leaf with Old Olive cs and the 5-Petal Flower Punch-I cut one of the petals off the flower and scored it down the middle. I also distressed the edge of the cardstock surrounding my pumpkins, using one of the tools from my Cutter Kit. I applied the pumpkins to my card using, Dimensionals (can I make a card without using dimensionals-not!) and tucked a fold piece of 5/8" Striped Tangerine Tango Ribbon under it. I then used the mat, stencil, and piercing tool from my Crafter's Tool Kit to add holes in the corners around the pumpin and then around the layers in the card. Not real happy with the stamping I did, but those stamps are from Everyday Fleixble Phrases, and I used Chocolate Chip classic ink. And there you have it! Those of you coming to my Punch Class tonight - will be making this card!!!
