For The Love Of Pumpkins

Ever since I posted my photo of those amazing Bellagio Pumpkins, I’ve had pumpkins on my mind, so I’m excited to finally have a chance to share a pumpkin-themed card with you!

Here’s a little information about the design. Most of the products on this card are from CTMH. The muted vintage look on the pumpkin was achieved by stamping the pumpkin on twill, using markers to trace the outline from the stamp (D1110 – Give Thanks) and then lightly applying the color. The crumpled mat adds texture and dimension against the patterned paper background and helps to accent the distressed ink.

The following challenges were incorporated into the card. If any of these inspire you, join in the fun!
