Pumpkin Bouquet

Hello there!  I have been itching to do some of the DTGD challenges and finally, here is my first for this year's round of fun for the DTGD challenge week.  If you are a Fan Club member, you know what I am talking about and if you are not yet a member...what are you waiting for?  Splitcoast has this super exciting challenge week every year!  Check it won't be disappointed!
This card is for the DTGDcraftycaro challenge.  It is also for the CPS176 sketch challenge.
I stamped my image in Memento Tux. black ink and coloured with Copic markers.  Cut this out and popped up on some foam bits and layered onto a Label One die, cut from a SU 6 X 6 paper pad.  I also added MS Brownstone glitter to the daisy centers.
The card front is a nice textured warm brown from a DCWV paper pad and the two front panels are fromKaiser's Peachy Keen pad.  I stitched these into place.  I made a center border with a MS modern garland punch to layer over the card front and under the focal image.  I added some fall colored rhinestones on either side of the pumkin bouquet.  The stamp is a new image that I bought from DRS designs.  Here is a close-up of the sparkly centers, unfortunately, the lighting was not the same, so a very poor interpretation of the colours...
Thanks for looking!
