Daydream Designs/Autumn Card

This is a card that I made for Mark's Finest Papers' Sketch With a Twist Challenge on Speedy TV where this week's challenge is to follow the sketch and make a tag, or include a tag on your card.  I used a tag from Freckled Fawn, added a sentiment from Daydream Designs, some hand-cut pumpkins from Mark's Finest Papers' Autumn Splendor stamp set, some raffia, a PTI flower cut from Prairie Point Junction wool felt (best wool felt EVER), some machine stitching, and a little sticker in the flower's center.
I'm entering this card in a few Autumn challenges as follows:

  3. Karen, I wondered where you got a framelet or die for the pumpkins. I checked to see if they were handcut but was unable to tell. The card is truly lovely. Blessings,
