Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

 

I just loved this inspiration piece :)  Those pumpkins are the cutest and the mix of colours is right up my alley too.

I created my Sahara Sand background using Polka Dot Basics II and then some Lime Twist paper for the bottom.  All those polka dots are making me happy...sigh... :)

Couldn't resist making a pumpkin so out came my large oval punch and some fun patterned paper.  I had to go with a tall skinny pumpkin otherwise I wouldn't have any room for my sentiment on the panel.  Funny thing is I tend to always pick a tall thin pumpkin when the kids and I go to the pumpkin patch so I guess it was meant to be.  I added a stem, leaf and a curly cue to the pumpkin and was good to go.

I'll be sorry when fall is over as I just love creating fall cards with my PTI Leaf dies. Tried to work them in here but the pumpkin urge was just too strong LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Marisa this is beautiful. I really like tall pumpkins too. I haven't made one of these pumpkins in ages. Need to get my punches out too.

Ah, your punched pumpkin is a real cutie. I don't look forward to the Fall season being gone..too many beautiful colors around. My crepe myrtles look as if they're on fire with the oranges.

Benzi said...

Oops! Or is that crape myrtles? :-)

Jessica said...

So, so sweet and elegant!
