Kristina's CI #43

I haven't done one of Kristina's challenges in yesterday I got my act together and made a card for #43. This is the swatch of colours we had to work with....yep, there's the dreaded Pumpkin!!!!And this is the card that I made:
The flower stamp comes from Just Johanna and I stamped it onto some Whisper White and coloured the stem with my Old Olive marker. I then stamped it onto some Brocade Blue and cut out the flower and again onto some Ruby Red and cut out the centre bit, then stuck them all together, colouring the *seeds* with Chocolate chip. The white panel was mounted onto some Ruby Red and then onto a larger piece of Olive. I tied on some Choc Chip satin ribbon and mounted it all onto a Choc Chip base. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and stamped in Choc Chip on White and punched out with the Word Window punch. I mounted that onto a large oval of Brocade Blue and then onto a scalloped circle of Pumpkin Pie. I punched a hole in that and tied it onto the ribbon with some hemp thread. I finished it all off with some Ruby buttons threaded with the hemp and stuck on with some mini glue dots....done!

I just wanted to mention that I totally *borrowed* the idea of the Word Window mounted onto an oval from Angela....I saw it on her blog yesterday and thought it was cute. She actually used two ovals, but I wanted to use the scalloped circle to mimic the tag in the inspiration thanks Ange!

Finally, here's the photo of the blog candy that I'm giving away. If you want to enter you need to see the previous post for details.
There's lots of great goodies in here...MAMBI glitter rub-ons, Basic Grey 6x6 papers, a whole bunch of random embellishments and all that lovely ribbon. I promise that I will sort it all out and pack it up neatly before I send it off....I was just trying to be artistic....LOL!!!! I think it's a pretty good give away...I'd be happy to win it anyway :)

OK, off to play with some crafty goodness....and do some more sorting out of stuff before I do the big reveal on the room improvements.

Have a great Sunday,

Oh, yes, the dreaded Pumpkin Pie! LOL! Actaully, I, too, thought about playing this one, especially since I still need an idea for a project for next weekend. Hmmm ... maybe these colors plus a sketch challenge... hmmmm off to play!

PS: Love the card!

That flower just pops right off the page. This is a great color combo! I never would have put all those colors together...I REALLY love how they boldly compliment each other to make a happy card.
