Pumpkin Thanks

Today is another beautiful fall day.  Our snow is almost melted, and most of the leaves have now fallen off of our front tree.  Time to go and finish raking them up.  Today I have a card that I've created for the challenge over at Designed 2 Delight.  There were three different freebie stamps to choose from but this one was just begging to be coloured first.  I have so much to be thankful for in my life, and such wonderful friends that I thought the "Thanks" sentiment was perfect for this card. 
I coloured the image with my pencil crayons, then to add a bit of softness to the outside of the label  I sponged some ink, cut it out and put it on some cardstock.  I layered the leaves paper between some distressing (since fall leaves are often crumpled) then I added rhinestones to the corners to set off the image.  Last I tied some ribbon to the back of the metal button, punched a couple of holes in the cardstock and tied the button onto the card with some braiding cord. 
I'm also entering this card in For Fun Challenges - Pumpkins - no face
