OCC Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!! It's again time for one of my favorite challenge blogs ... Our Creative Corner. Today's challenge is an inspirational challenge hosted by the August Hostess - Loretta Lock. With this comment: In rural communities, it’s almost time for harvest ... that is the path I followed for my creation.
My card is A-6 in size and I have used the H&M Beverly Cole stamp set called "Old Fashioned Hayride" and the GinaK stamp set called "Happy Harvest". The sunflower image is from the Crafty Secrets Garden Cotton Scraps and it has been distressed and matted with Chocolate Chip cs. Although you can't see it very well in the photo ... the background green paper is linen designer paper by Making Memories. My sentiment was stamped in Versafine Sepia and clear embossed then diecut with Nestabilities Label Four and sponged in old olive & pumpkin pie before removing from the die. The pumpkins were stamped onto pumpkin pie cs with versafine black ink and clear embossed before being cut out with my swivel craft knife.

I hope you enjoy this FALL creation. Isn't it hard to believe that the summer is nearly over???? Gosh, time is sure flying by!!! Have a great weekend everyone!!
