The Paper Players #515


Laurie has a new theme challenge at The Paper Players this week to welcome in November.  Use the inspiration photo to show us your Turkey Time creations!

My card was created with my favorite fall stamp set, Autumn Blessings.  While I am not a pumpkin spice everything fan…I do love me some pumpkins! Pumpkins and burlap are my favorite fall combination! In case you have missed my previous creations, here is a look at the complete set-

To create my card, I stamped my pumpkins in Intense Black ink and then colored with Copics.  The image was die cut and popped up with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  The pumpkins were mounted on a new to me layering die from Simon Says Stamp. In keeping with my love of burlap, I added a strip of burlap, matted in Nectarine cardstock.  More texture was added with the Wood Panel Embossing Folder by Close To My Heart.  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Fusion Card Challenge.
