Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Pretty Pumpkins



Welcome back to our second inspiration challenge of the month.  This time round we are celebrating the season with this fabulous pumpkin inspiration photo.  The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge.

In addition, we wish Tenia Nelson all the best as she leaves our team, and offer a warm welcome to Leigh Penner, our newest Crew member!

I adored this inpsiration photo and took it quite literally!  Pulled out papers that matched the colours and patterns on the photo and paper pieced a trio of pumpkins using Verve's Bountiful Harvest.

Since I am on a bit of a square card binge at the moment, I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for my card, arranged my pumpkins and added a die cut "thanks" using PTI's word die.

Hello my friend..well, once again, I'm tardy in commenting (seriously, how did two weeks pass by soooo quickly?) but on the plus side: gallery walk! Your sweet pumpkin trio is absolutely delightful! Their fancy colours, zig-zags, gingham and polkadots, are so eye-catching! Stars of the stage, those cutie pie gourds!
