Lil' Pumpkin....

Hey there!!  Wow... it's Friday evening!  Can't believe I haven't posted anything all week but my Timeless Tuesday card!   I have actually made somethings this week, but they have all been for challenges at Splitcoaststampers and so I haven't posted them on my blog.



My card today is for the current Shabby Tea Room challenge.  The challenge this week was to make a card using the beautiful inspiration photo that incorporates the colors of black, purple and orange and twine or raffia.   For my card I used a My Favorite Things Pure Innocence set called "Lil' Pumpkin.  I'm just in love with the Pure Innocence line of stamps.  They are just soo stinkin' cute.  The layout for my card comes from this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge.   I did a bit a paper piecing, as well as coloring the image with Copic markers and then trimmed it out.  The pumpkin portion of the image was stamped a second time, colored and then a portion trimmed out.  This piece was adhered to the image using a pop dot for a bit of dimension.  I added a bit of bling as well to give it some of the sparkle that you see in the inspiration photo.  The sentiment is a SRM sticker.  I managed to get the required twine in by adding some pieces of knotted twine to the top of the pumpkin.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Royal Velvet, Plum Pudding & Vintage Cream; Gina K. Black; PP:  BasicGrey Eerie; Gems:  KaiserCraft; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Ink:  Tuxedo Black; Sticker:  SRM
