Fusion - Nov 12th - Warm Welcome

Just in time for Thanksgiving - we have a lovely photo for inspiration for this fortnights Fusion Challenge!
I  love cream colored pumpkins and that was what inspired me for my Thanksgiving card!
I used my Alterations Pumpkin Parts die for my layered pumpkin - the die includes the base pumpkin shape, the stem and then 3 strips that you can cut as many as you want of to layer onto your pumpkin. I used Vintage Cream Linen Cardstock and I sponged all the edges of the pumpkin pieces with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I layered them over the pumpkin base with foam dots.  
I die cut the flowers using Button Stacks Set from PTI and added orange rhinestones to the centers of each.  They are layered onto the pumpkin with foam dots.  The Thankful is another PTI die from the Counting My Blessings die set.
I'm also linking my card to the following challenges:
Make My Monday - Many Thanks
 Crazy 4 Challenges - Cards of Thanks/Traditional Colors
Just Us Girls - Stripes
The Card Concept -  clean and layered

 How will you be inspired by the Fusion Challenge this week?  By the photo, the sketch, or will you combine the two???!!   Can't wait to see what you link up over at the Fusion Card Challenge blog!
