SSSC44 Thankful

Good Sunday morning Peeps. It is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!

Here is the sketch we are using this week:

I have to tell you that I was pretty thrown by this sketch when I first saw it. I thought about it awhile and one day at while I was grocery shopping it just hit me, I could make those little circles pumpkins. After that it all just fell into place.

I used some of the Autumn Meadows DS paper. This paper is wonderful, I love the rustic, aged feel of it. The sentiment comes from the "Grateful Greetings" set and of course those paper pieced pumpkins are from my favorite "Autumn Harvest" set. The base of the card is made with chocolate chip and then I followed that with some taken with teal and then the DS paper. I used my circle and scallop nesties to make the large BG scallop circle, with really rust cardstock and more of the DS paper. The sentiment is stamped onto very vanilla with chocolate chip ink. I matted that with more chocolate chip cardstock and added three antique copper brads.

I tucked a bit of striped chocolate chip ribbon behind the sentiment panel.

So why not join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen's blog and link your card so all of us can see your creation!
