Pumpkin' Patch Sweetness

Hello my sweet bloggy friends!  Welcome back, and thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today.  I made this little Autumn Pumpkin' Patch card for a couple of specific challenges I wanted to enter.
I used a piece of patterned paper from my SUPER OLD STASH.  I also chose to use a vintage cream doily, a piece of burlap (under the pumpkins), some buttons, jute, baker's twine, Tim Holtz ink, a Paper Sweeties sentiment stamp, and Mark's Finest Papers pumpkin stamp.  I colored the pumpkins using my (limited) Copic collection.
 
These are the challenges I'm entering with this card:
 
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog - Challenge #169 - Pumpkin Patch
 
Mark's Finest Papers - Challenge #68 - Sketch With a Twist - I used a small piece of burlap for my fabric element.  The burlap is placed under my pumpkins which were stamped using Mark's Finest Papers Autumn Splendor stamp set!
 
Paper Sweeties Challenge - Challenge #12 - Color Inspiration - My sentiment is a Paper Sweeties stamp

Curtain Call Challenge Blog - Challenge #15 - Gorgeous Gourds - I had to make my gourds orange.  I just couldn't bring myself to make blue gourds, but so many other people sure pulled it off beautifully!!

Simple Salutations - I used a Mark's Finest Papers pumpkin stamp, and a Paper Sweeties sentiment stamp for my "sentiment" element for this challenge.
 
Thanks again for visiting, and have a blessed day.  I'd love to stop by your blog to see what you've created this week.  Happy crafting!

  16. LOL. I like how you referred to your Copic collection as limited. I think many of us have those few precious Cpoic markers that we find excuses to use!

    Digging the pumpkins! And that vintage doily is gorgeous.
