Hello Harvest and the Leaf Fall

Did you know that there is a Global Tiger Day?  There is and it is the festivity we are featuring on the Festive Friday Challenge. What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.


I chose stripes, orange, and black.


I used the lovely Hello Harvest bundle.  I stamped the pumpkin on Pumpkin Pie CS and used the coordinating die to cut it out. The flowers were stamped on Basic White CS and colored using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delights, Smoky Slate, and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  Can you see the tiny black dots around the flowers?  I used the Pearlized Enamel Effects and was pleased that I was able to make such small dots.  I kind of held my breath while I was doing it and expected a big blob to come out but it never happened.  In the background you can see the beautiful Leaf Fall embossing folder.  This is a 3D embossing folder.  The stripe DSP is from the Black & White Designs.  


I look forward to seeing your projects in the Festive Friday gallery.

What a gorgeous Autumn card, Sharon. I love the embossed background and that wonderful pumpkin filled with sunflowers is just wonderful. The stripes set it off beautifully, and of course, I love the inside as well.sunflower
