a row of pumpkins

Hi, my friends. This is my 2nd post today. I seldom check the featured stamper challenge on SCS, since the family is home and there is less time to get everything out to stamp, but for some reason, this morning I looked and quickly found this card to case. I changed everything except the layout.

I used a long retired SU background stamp called weathered, which I stamped in crumb cake on cream cardstock. The card base is dusty durango, which I used because it was the best match for the pumpkins.

I pumpkin image is from Autumn Harvest (SU). I pulled out some orange dp (all from a DCWV Indian Summer stack) and stamped one pumpkin on each and then cut them out. I sponged some vintage photo ink on the edges to give them a bit more depth and colored the stems with a green marker. Then I just glued them in a staggered row across the card, tied some copper cord around it and added a tag, using Small Script (SU) and my word window punch.

I love when cards come together so easily.

Thanks for visiting.
