Pumpkins & Gratitude

Wow. I do NOT have a lot of time this week. Soooo...I have to combine challenges. Which I don't do a whole lot. BUT, these challenges just fit really well together, so it must be fate!

So, here are the challenges I'm submitting this card into:



These are all FABULOUS challenges, so I hope you get a chance to join us each week!

Now to the card! I knew that the colors from CR84FN screamed fall, and I'm in LOVE with a new pumpkin image that I recently bought, so I knew that I'd be doing a fall card. And fall to me means gratitude.

Hence the sentiment~

Now, I LOVE doing resist techniques, so it was appropriate to combine Wee Memories with Make My Monday. And the pumpkin needed to be embossed and then colored with a resist technique. So that's what I did!

See?~

And then I saw the JUGS sketch. And my card was put together!

Oh, you wanna see the finished product?!

Ok!

Here it is~

This is another card I'm using for the Gratitude Project. Click on the button on the top left of my blog for more info. :) Happy stamping!
