Fall is my favorite of all the seasons. I love the colors and the crisp fresh air. Well, when it comes to making cards, the warm colors that are normally associated with fall, are right up my alley!! They're my favorite to work with.
So, making this card was such a joy. I used Mercy's sketch for this week (found Here) as my starting point. One fun thing about using already prepared sketches, is that I tend to go in different directions with my embellishing to make the sketch work instead of adapting my sketch to embellishments or an image. Today, I used an image from JustRite's Autumn Blessings set. I love pumpkins, and I knew I had the perfect dp to fit this sketch and image. I hauled out the Twilight dp by Memory box and cut the pieces to fit the sketch. I then colored three pumpkin images with copics in order to paper-tole.
The Designer Rhinestone Flourishes are by Basicgrey, and the leaf is by Spellbinders.
I framed the pumpkins with an Oval Nestabilities and Labels 5 (Spellbinders), and the corners were made with a Fiskars corner punch. I thought they fit beautifully with the Labels 5 die.
