Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #14

It's time for another MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE ... In fact, I'm late!!!! Here is this week's sketch we had to play with ... isn't it great!!

With seeing all the fall cards that are popping up on blogs ... I decided to create a Thanksgiving Day card. This image came to me as a gift from one of the Stampin' D'Amour gals ... I just LOVE the vintage feel of this little guy!! My designer papers are Pixie Press and Paper Pizazz and the card base is Mellow Moss. All the matting was done with Chocolate Chip and the picket fence was created using the Martha Stewart picket fence border punch on Very Vanilla cs then sponging with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink. The sentiment is from the SU Country Blessings stamp set and the pumpkins are from the H&M (Beverly Cole) Old Fashioned Hayride stamp set. The pumpkins were stamped onto Pumpkin Pie cs with Versafine sepia ink then cut out with a swivel craft knife and popped up with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this little creation today!! If you haven't been to Priscilla's blog and taken part in all the festivities over there ... YOU ARE MISSING IT ... GET ON OVER THERE!!!! Have a great day my friends!!
