Double D Challenge - Pumpkin Time

Happy Wednesday Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new & fun challenge at the

Today Team Diane is hosting the challenge
and the theme Diane has chosen is . . .

(yes it is that time of year isn't it!!)

Check out this fabulous inspiration tile board Diane has created ...

 I don't do many cards for this time of year so this was a challenge
for me but what a fun time I had creating and putting together
this design ... what do you think?

When I first began pulling items together than I thought I might
be able to use for today's card, I spotted a strip of orange burlap (left over
from a project I did a few years back for JoAnn Fabrics) and thought
that would be great on today's card so I cut a strip.
However, once I was done cutting and stacking all my pumpkins, you
can hardly see the burlap panel that I was so thrilled to show off!  LOL
Can you see it now?  LOL

I wanted a nice Fall sentiment but then spotted this Fall sticker
among my (very neglected) scrapbooking stash.
I double matted it with green and orange card stock panels
and I think it works beautifully!

I hope you'll come join in the challenge fun
and by all means pop over to see what the design teams 
have created!  Such talented designers!!

The burlap adds such nice texture and backdrop. I would love to see your paper stash because you always seem to have the perfect paper for every project. Fabulous project.

You made me giggle about the burlap, but that pumpkin pile is awesome! Cute little close up peek you gave us. Great paper you used -- you know how I love designer paper -- and good job putting that sticker to work for you. Fun visit today, Darlene!

I love your pumpkin patch, and the pretty sunflower to go with it, isn't it funny how we plan on using something and the card just has a mind of it's own, you can see that little bit sticking out there :)

Carol L said...

I can see that burlap panel and it goes beautifully with those pumpkins! I like the little sunflower accent too for a perfect autumn card! OK now, bring on the pumpkin pie :)

Hi Darlene, you have created a beautiful fall arrangement with these dies and image. Super card, my friend! Thank you for joining our Autumn Day challenge at Anything But Cute! Hugs, Autumn

Haha! I couldn't see the orange burlap until you pointed it out. Isn't that the case when you want to show off something, it gets covered. Those pumpkins sure bring the card to life though and such a wonderful display. Awesome sauce details!

Thanks for joining us at Anything But Cute for our "Autumn Day" challenge. Hugz. ~Niki DT
