Keesh's Challenge #6


All thanks to Keesh for providing us with this Inspiration Challenge. I just had to have a go at this one as I just love the colour combo. Sorry Keesh, I didn't mean to be a copycat but it was the golden opportunity to put a punchie pumpkin on the card. To keep in with a rustic look, I roughly ran the green square through the crimper and then sponged the edges. The stalk has been punched out with the big oval punch.


The wording comes from one of our new sets called Good Friend and I filled it in with Versamark. Other sets used used were Season of Joy and Sanded. LOVE that Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon!


Now back to thinking what else I can do for Convention swaps - wish my SU order would come - hopefully tomorrow so I can maybe do something over the weekend as next week, I have people coming and going all week. Lots of cooking etc! Which reminds me, I must cook a pumpkin fruit cake.

Gorgeous!!! I love how you ran the piece through the crimper and then inked up the edges. The texture that it gives just makes the card.
