Autumn... 48

Mona Pendleton | Monday, September 24, 2012 @ 12:37 AM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a great weekend! I made a card in celebration of Autumn. It's not easy for me to get in a Fall festive mode quite yet because the temps are still in the 90's here in Phoenix, we're still wearing shorts and swimming in our pools. Either way, I want to celebrate :) The more I look at this card, the more the pumpkin looks red but I promise you it is not! It's a deep orange. Is it my eyes playing tricks on me because it is after Midnight or is it my computer??? 
To make this card, I stamped the pretty pumpkin from MFT Inspired by Autumn, colored with various Copic Markers then cut it out. I layered it on top of a doily die cut made using a die from Die-namics Dainty Doily DUO.
I rarely ever make a card without a sentiment on the front but this time I did because I didn't want to cover up the embossed design. I stamped one of the beautiful sentiments from MFT Inspired by Autumn along with the pumpkin.
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Unscripted Sketches challenge #177:
Hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for visiting!
Be Sweet :)

Die Karte ist innen und außen wunderbar geworden. Durch den geprägten Hintergrund wird der Kürbis noch betont, er wirkt wie überzuckert. Ein toller Effekt!

I love it when you make things sparkle Mona lol. I did not see the embossed folder listed and it's perfect for fall cards. Is it a folder or a dp? I'd love to know. :)

Enjoy that pool all you can, the water here is starting to cool off which means our boating season will end soon. :( But I love this time of the year and look forward to our annual cruise to view the turning leaves with a mug of hot cider to keep warm. Hugs
