Fall Pumpkins

It really has felt like fall the last few days. Yesterday I pull out the fall decor and starting decorating for fall. There are a lot of card challenges using fall themes and colors so I pulled out some pumpkin stamps and autumn colors and here is one of the results.

Stamped pumpkins on a cream CS and colored with Copics and sponged with inks. Matted on a gold metallic CS. Both cut with circle dies. Assembled card with a sketch from Stamp TV using cream base, brown mat, embossed pumpkin spice mat, strip of green layered with ribbon and a oval with sentiment embossed in gold EP.
