Thinking of Fall

Hello! I am back after several days of not posting and commenting .  I have missed visiting my blog friends and participating in challenges.  I decided I must make a quick card for Joan's Gardens to get back in the swing ..... Her challenge this week is
  • Use gingham, checks or plaids
  • Colors - Green, white and brown
  • Butterflies
  • Something fallish...pumpkins, scarecrows, leaves etc
  • You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens
  • Check it out here
    I used a check paper from Webster Pages Park Drive 6x6 pad that I won from Joan's Gardens for my background and placed it on a card base of Brown Cardstock.  I stamped the pumpkins in Memento Espresso Truffle ink on White Cardstock using  Heartfelt Creations "Rustic Autumn Wheel" stamp but only used the pumpkin portion of the stamp that I fancy cut. I colored this with Copics. I added a strip of white grosgrain ribbon , then popped up the Pumpkins across the ribbon. The Brown Butterflies were cut with a Martha Stewart punch and embellished with pearls. I finished with the sentiment from the same Heartfelt Creations set stamped in the Espresso Ink. Joan's Garden also sells Memento Ink, Martha Stewart Punches, and Heartfelt Creations products.
    Check out Martha Stewart here.
