Day 3- Sketch 3- 29 Days To Go

Good Morning! Here we go. Today is Day 3 in the 31 Days of Angelosity. If you're not planning on playing, I think you should reconsider. This box of prizes is going to be good. The final day will end with a bang like fireworks. And it will be something you'll enjoy all year long! Okay, no more hints. I will leave it at that.
Today's sketch is oh, so simple. I made a small 4x4 square card out of it and left off the sentiment on the outside.
I used my new High Hopes Stamps I just received in the mail this week, thanks to Julie at Paper Pleasing Ideas! I won her blog candy drawing just a while back. And I am having fun with my new stamps. I used another High Hopes stamp on the inside. It reads "If friends were pumpkins, I'd pick you!"
I also used a cute pumpkin ribbon I got in another blog winning from Julie at Card Creativity. I think this card is so much cuter in real life.

Card Recipe:
Pumpkin Trio (High Hopes)
Ink: Pumpkin, Garden Green, Close to Cocoa, (Really Rust & Ruby Red to color with as well)
Paper: Shimmery White, Pumpkin, Garden Green
Accessories: Blender Pen, Paper Piercer, Cutter Kit, and ribbon by The Paper Studio

Since we have 29 days to go, today I add to the prize box: 29 envelopes in 3 different sizes.

(10) large 6 1/2" x 4 3/4"
(10) standard card size 5 3/4" x 4 3/8"
(9) mini 2 1/2" x 4 1/4"
I am getting an early start to my day. I hope to get ahead in making my sketches and cards! I hope you all have a great Tuesday. See you tomorrow!
I feel like stampin'!!

Love the fall themed card. It's crisp today in MN (55 degrees) which makes it feel like fall. I hope to try some of your sketches before the contest is over.
