Thank You Pumpkins

This week's Verve sketch is brought to us by Amy and it is a nice CAS sketch for us to work with.

Since I'm full swing into the Autumn colour scheme and mood, I pulled out Autumn Splendor because these pumpkins are just too cute :)   I used the circle version of the Scalloped Trim Trio and one of the Flag It dies for the sentiment.   The debossed side of my Swiss Dots embossing folder softened the background and a little ribbon treatment and red hemp stitches finished things off.

Want to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store?!  All you have to do is complete all the sketches in a given month and load them on the Verve Challenge Thread on Splitcoast Stampers and a random winner will received the gift certificate.   Easy peasy, and with a recent release and another one coming in the near future, it's the perfect way to get some spending money :)



Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me today :)
