I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#160 for the layout, the colours are from Colour Throwdown # CTD#316 and the idea for the wreath is from Just Us Girls - JUGS#265. I cut the big banner in white, embossed it with autumnal words and then lightly ran the blue ink pad over the top. I adhered the banner and black panel directly on the card. The first layer of leaves were made by inking the stamp with Tangelo Twist, stamping off and then immediately inking with Crushed Curry to give a slightly yellow orange colour. I adhered the wreath using dimensional tape at the top and glue it flat at the bottom. The pumpkins were adhered with dimensional tape. On the inside I cut a simple mat layer of black card and on the white card stamped a greeting a some more pumpkins.
I did make a few more cards yesterday, but you'll have to wait a while as they are DT cards. I've got to get ahead with my cards as Ben and his girlfriend are coming over to the States to spend Thanksgiving with us. I'm so excited, it's been nearly a year since we saw Ben. I just hope that the weather doesn't get too cold before he arrives. That's all for now, see you soon.
