Grateful - Pumpkin Boy - Freebie

        This is the most adorable little boy pushing the wheelbarrow filled with pumpkins.  My inspiration came from Deloris, a fellow friend card maker. The image is called AKV wheelbarrow boy from Bugaboo Stamps. (50% off sale this month.) I tried to make it Fall without using orange.  Actually, it has a little turquoise and wine as well as other Fall colors.  I embossed the Hero Art leaf with bronze powder and it's shiny with wonderful texture.  I doubled stitched around the card....looks like I may have had too much wine while sewing one side...not really....I think I sneezed and it went askew....haha.

The freebie today doesn't follow with my card. My future DIL has done a half marathon and is now training for a marathon in California in a few months.  Someone asked me today for help with this picture, so it helps her and helps me as well.
