Gracielle Design New Stamp Blog Hop/Give-Away

Welcome, everyone!  Today is the first day of the Gracielle Design New Stamp Release Blog Hop and Give-Away and we are SO glad that you have decided to join us.  You should have arrived here from Gracie's Blog, but if you didn't; that's OK because it was the first stop so you're not far behind.  Gracie is showcasing six beautiful new stamp sets and a coordinating Special Edition Paper Pack.  The stamp set I used to create my card is called Bountiful Seasons.  Here's a look at what it includes:
I used two (very old) Melissa Frances patterned papers for my background.  I covered the green paper at the bottom with Olive Netting.  I printed my pumpkin image four times and used orange watercolor on each one.  Then, I used my Copics to add more color to make each one look very similar.  I added some tiny bits of burlap to make "hay" to make the pumpkins look like they're resting in hay.  I printed one (of the four) sentiments from this new Bountiful Seasons stamp set, and embossed it in brown.
To complete this blog hop, you will need to visit and leave a comment on each participant's blog.  Don't worry, there are only seven stops in all.  And because the final stop is on our Facebook page, there are even more chances to win so be sure to complete the hop.  You could be one of the lucky winners of a brand new stamp set from the Gracielle Design New Stamp Release, or the winner of the sweet new Special Edition Paper Pack.  And....there will be LOTS of great inspiration along the way.
Your next stop on the hop is at the blog of my sweet and talented blog friend, Autumn.  I just know she has prepared something extra lovely for you all.  Have fun on the hop, and again, make sure you make all seven stops, leave a comment on each, and GOOD LUCK! 

Thanks for hopping along,
Karen

P.S.  I'm linking up this card in a fun challenge:
