Saturday Card with a recipe

Recently I made some Pumpkin Marmalade
and to decorate the jar and the card I used the free
pumpkin image from Michael Strong's blog.
You can find the imag here.

For the lttle card  I printed the recipe on heavy white
cardstock and folded the card, Then colored the pumpkin
with distress markers and cut it out,glued it to orange paper
and cut it out again. Added some green sticky gemstones.
For the background I used a piece of light brown paper
 and stamped Michael Strong's cloisonne square stamp
in vintage photo just lightly. Added a ribbon and on top
stuck the pumpkin with foam tape.
Another image of the pumpkin was colored for the lid of he
jar and cut out with a circle die. For the orange paper
I used a scalloped die. Glued all together and with foam 
tape to the jar.

Inside my card I printed the recipe. As you can see this
is in dutch. i googled an English recipe for you that
is very close to the one I used:

Thanks for looking and
have a creative day!
