Joan's Gardens Challenge #32

Time for another fun challenge at JOAN'S GARDENS!
This week it's all about FALL and the requirements are:

  • Fall card (possibly with a pumpkin)
  • Tree
  • Polka Dot back Ground
  • Grass

  • I started this card last evening but it wasn't coming together for me so I sat it aside and started back on it this morning.  My brain seemed to be working better today!!  Here's what I came up with . . .

    I created my own background using SU 'pumpkin' ink and Versafine black ink and the All Nite Media 'splatter pattern' rubber stamp.  Next I added the tree - Stampscapes 'Oak Branch'  #203G.  Next came my pumpkin which is a Shelly's Images digi called 'fall friends'.  There is actually a cat with the pumpkin in this awesome digi set but I 'cut him out of the picture' since I just couldn't get him to fit in properly.  Coloring was done with Prismacolor markers.  My grass is a Memory Box 'grassland border' #825 which I purchased at Joan's Gardens.  And lastly are my embellishments ... Halloween wire ribbon from Michaels and a Cricut cut spider from the DoodleCharms Cricut cartridge.
    Hope everyone is having a FABULOUS day and looking forward to a fun HOLIDAY weekend.
    See you soon!
