Pumpkins, my favourite!

Pumpkins are my favourite vegetable.  Alongside potato...   and corn....  and beans. I make a lot of pumpking soup in the winter, using only butternut pumpins.... just love their sweetness.  So I really enjoyed creating with this week's Designed 2 Delight challenge image!

Ingredients: Textured Olive Cardstock - Craft Affair; Papers - Kaisercraft; Markers - Bic; Chalks - Pebbles Inc; Sequin Flowers - 'vintage' unknown; Gold Peel Off Sentiment.

The image was coloured with markers, cut and trimmed.  I discovered that the cardstock I was using has faint indent... yikes... at regular intervals.... YIKES!  I won't be buying this brand of white stock again.  To tone the white cardstock, where I couldn't trim around the wheat, I coloured with chalk....

I let the patterns do the creating this week.  These papers are from the Tea At Elsies 6" pad from Kaisercraft.... lots of co-ordinated patterns, embossed, borders, the works.

The sequin flowers in the corners were purchased from a flea market - sometimes where I have my market stall, there is a lady selling her old craft items.... I find some great stuff to use!
