I had a Starbucks coffee sleeve on my table and I pulled it apart to get to the corrugation. After I squared this piece up, I tied a piece of hemp around it, placed the pumpkin on it and added the button with the linen thread. Oh, almost forgot - the sentimenet "Gratitude" was added from the Day of Gratitude set using Cherry Cobbler and my Stamp-a-ma-jig.
The leaf layer is backed by Cajun Craze, then Autumn Spice DSP on a Cherry Cobbler card base. I kind of like this technique and will probably give it another try. What do you think?
