MTSC Grateful Greetings

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

I made my card a bit bigger to accommodate the pumpkins and sentiment I wanted to use. The finish size is 5 x 5-1/2 inches. I dug out some of last years fall DS paper, Autumn Vines.

The base of the card is chocolate chip and then layered with really rust and the DS paper. I cut out a top not with really rust and another pattern of the DS paper. Trimmed the DS paper and layered it over the really rust. I cut it flat on one side.

i stamped the pumpkins and greeting onto watercolor paper with black stazon. I colored in the pumpkins with my aqua painter and used more mustard, pumpkin pie, really rust and ruby red ink. The stems and ground was colored in with chocolate chip, altho the sentiment covers most of the ground.

I used 5/8 inch chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon. I added some pretty leaves brad from my stash. the circle and scallop is cut with my nesties and cuttlebug. The pumpkin image and sentiment are mounted with dimensionals.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
