Barb: Pumpkin..Diamond Shaped card

I fell in love with this stamp that I just ordered fromYour Next Stamp , a lovely pumpkin image. It can be used throughout the fall seasom. I just had to craft with it. While surfing the web I found the greatest site: sas project tuesday. On there was a diamond shaped card. It looked so inviting, I just had to try it. The directions were so easy to follow and I just couldn't stop until it was completed. The sentiment says: Thank You....For Being You The difficult part is in deciding who should receive it!!!
After following the directions, using cardstock, I cut the designer paper and glued it in place. The image was stamped three times, twice on DP. I then cut out the large pumpkin and on the second sheet, the small pumpkin. I used pop dots to raise it to add dimension. The stems were colored with Prisma Pencils.
