Harvest Card for Challenges

This week at Speedy the Cat's Friends Blog, Geri has challenged us to make a Harvest card - any way we want- colors, fruit, flowers,etc.  I decided to ink up the stamp that I received this week from Mark's Finest Papers as a prize from their blog hop. The pumpkin stamp is perfect for a harvest card and I paired it  with an Ivy stamp that I have had for years and never used. I stamped the pumpkin on orange paper and also on green for the leaf. I stamped the ivy on green also using brown ink to stamp. I cut the images out and placed on yellow cs. Stamped the sentiment with brown also.  Following the sketch from Card Sketches at CPS, I finished with a stripe paper and solid orange. Added metal brads that I colored with brown copics.
