Pumpkin Inspiration

Hi everyone! I hope you have had a fantastic weekend!  Mine has been busy but so much fun! I had some girl time yesterday morning when I had some ladies over for a jewelry party and then in the afternoon a group of us headed to Wichita to watch the "Like Dandelion Dust" movie which was great!  Ahhhh, gotta love time with the girls!

Yesterday I received some new Verve goodies but didn't have time to play with them.  Tonight I saw a challenge that I knew I had to play along with because the inspiration was a photo of pumpkins which matched the set I received perfectly!  This is the inspiration piece from The Shabby Tea Room challenge:

We were to use the colors from the photo as our inspiration and/or our card had to include at least one pumpkin in our design.

Here's mine:

Aren't these pumpkins so cute?  I love the design of them so much!  On this next photo you can see that I used glitter on the Spring Moss cardstock strip to add some "zing" to it!  I love the sparkle it pretty in real life!

The layout for this card was based on the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge #89.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed the card!!

Paper:  PTI Kraft, Spring Moss, Dotty Biscotti, Stampers Select White, Ripe Avocado
