Hello Pumpkin!

I created this card for 3 different challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - use orange, olive green, yellow & brown colors.
Our Creative Corner Challenge - wonderful windows.
ODBD Shining Light Challenge - lacing. I might get gonged on this one...not sure if lacing baker's twine through a 4-holed button is what they had in mind, but I'm going with that for now! :-) I loved coloring this new ODBD pumpkin image, then used their coordinating die to cut it out! The square of rustic cream CS behind the postage stamp Nestie frame is covered with overlapping tulle leaves that were cut using Tim Holtz' tattered leaves die. I used brown and light green tulle which gives a very subtle texture to the BG. The finished card is 5 1/4" square.


STAMPS: Pumpkin by ODBD, Sentiment Flags by Lil' Inker Designs, Happy Fall (sentiment) by Verve.
PAPER: Simply Autumn by Recollections, Rustic Cream by PTI.
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Pumpkin die (ODBD), Postage Stamps Nesties, Button, Chocolate baker's twine, Copics.
