When I spotted the inspiration photo for the Card Concept Challenge this week, I knew I had the perfect stamp set for it.
I recently bought the Hero Arts set, "Autumn," which I had yet to use. The design of the pumpkin reminds me of the recent coloring book/doodling craze. Included in the set are several leaves with the same kind of patterns.
I gold embossed the images and colored them with my Kuretake watercolors. Papertrey Ink's burlap coverplate added just the right kind of texture for the background. I added a stitched strip from a rejected piece from yesterday's crafting session. The sentiment is also from an used set which I've had for quite some time. Papertrey sent it as a thank you awhile ago, and it turned out to be perfect. I die cut the word from Canyon Clay paper and then made a banner with a stitched edge for the rest of the sentiment.
One of the interesting features of the Card Concept Challenge is the ability to make a card in any style. I'm sticking with my usual "Clean & Simple" for this one, and I'm happy to have another birthday card ready to put in the mail next month!
