Fusion Card Challenge: Thankful


We are approaching Thanksgiving so quickly which also means our family's early Christmas celebration will soon be here! It's a difficult year to get everyone together and not sure it will even happen to have all three of the kids' families be together at once. Safety from the virus is in our minds, so we will just see how things progress. Back to the reason you are really here and that's to check out the new Fusion Card Challenge. I was primarily inspired by the photo (triangular linen piece, pumpkins, copper accessories, etc.) but I'm thinking you could say my 3 pumpkins are also a loose interpretation of the sketch.

This Hello Pumpkin set from Ink to Paper is a fall favorite of mine
and I'm thinking this will probably be the last time I use it in 2020. It will be full on Christmas mode rest of the year! The copper embossed twig pumpkin doesn't show up well in the first two photos, but this close up shows the detail fairly well.

STAMPS: Hello Pumpkin, Leaves In Fall (sentiment) - both by Ink to Paper.

PAPER: Lost and Found Halloween 6x6" pad (My Mind's Eye); Rustic Cream (Ink to Paper).

INK: Pure Black, Orange Zest, Canyon Clay, Terracotta Tile, Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Honey Nut, Classic Kraft, Cocoa Bean (dye inks by Ink to Paper); Versamark.

DIES: Hello Pumpkin (Ink to Paper); Stitched Rectangle and Square STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things).

OTHER: Jute twine.

Here's hoping you will play along with us in this challenge! See you in the gallery!

This is gorgeous! I love the rich colours of your pumpkins and the leaves. This year is going to be unusual for many families, I do hope you find a way to celebrate together. Cx
