Amuse Challenge #4 - PUNCHES - Hello Pumpkin

Okay, I know this has been done a bajillion times before and I know that I am not the original creator, however, I also do not know who to credit for the original idea. Basically, I got this adorable amuse stamp with using it with this kind of punch pumpkin in mind, and then this challenge just gave me the push to make the stinking card already, so I did. I used I piece of cuttlebugged card stock that I had generously sent to me in the mail -- it was embossed with the swirls template. I hand stitched the corners of the card stock with some embroidery floss I had on hand and a needle. I stamped the stem from SU's "Carved and Candlelit" to create the pumpkin stem and the rest is done with oval punches. So not entirely original, but it is mine nonetheless.

Oh and can I just whine that I am SO sad that Grey's Anatomy will not be all new tonight because the season is over? How in the heck am I gonna make it through until the fall *sigh* Guess I am going to have to stamp a lot to keep myself busy . . .
