Sit On a Pumpkin!

No not really! It's the quote I used by Henry David Thoreau. What a hard card to take a picture of...just couldn't get the light or the focus quite right. Uhmmm, wait a minute, it's an automatic focus...enough said about my camera skills!

Here is the card...
This is another card by Designed to Delight Digital Stamps, Happy Harvest. I received this digi free by participating in last week's challenge. You can grab this from the store if you would like to join in. Whatever you decide, be watching for the first free digi she gives away at the beginning of the month and then join in for a free digi each week. Along with D2D, you can also use the digi to join in Double Delight to make a clean and simple card. Her definition of CAS is to make it less than an hour. I hope that doesn't count all the time it takes me to make up my feeble mind including the time I keep changing it!  LOL! I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in that pumpkin patch...

I went with a non-traditional fall color scheme by following the Color Create Challenge to use the following picture for an inspiration, being sure to include ivory, duck egg blue plus one other color, I went with mellow moss although it doesn't show well in the pic.

I also am entering this in the Fab n' Funky Challenge to use your favorite colors. Besides the Mellow Moss, I used Soft Sky from SU!. Too bad it's retired, I LOVE IT!

The sketch I followed is from Card Patterns Challenge and is shown below.
One Stitch At a Time asked for punches, took me 3 different tries to settle on the leaf border. Also for Alphabet Challenge "P" is for punches.

Enjoy your day!

WOW!! If we start the week on Monday then this is your third card for the week!! YEAH!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this non-traditional colored Fall card!! I tried to use that same inspiration color challenge for my teddy bear card, but just couldn't make it work, but yours ROCKS!!! Excellent work mother dear and can't wait to see what you come up with next...but oh wait...the kids go back to school tomorrow (today your time)...have a feeling we won't see anything from you for awhile :( So sad!! Oh well, I keep checking your blog just in case!
