Happy Fall-Tuesday Throwdown #67


It's Tuesday again and we have another fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. The theme is Fall. I wanted to do this pretty image called Autumn  that Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  provided the design team. I decided to do something a little different and paper piece my pumpkins with brown and white dotted paper. I colored the leaves and stems and added a flourish vine. I cut a Spellbinders Labels 14 to put my image on and used designer paper from a K&CO Ghostly Greetings die cut mat pad (green). The polka dotted paper came from a scrapbook store and has no name. I computer generated my sentiment and die cut with a Spellbinders nested pennant die cut.
We sure hope to see you playing along with us at Tuesday Throwdown.  You may win some wonderful digi stamps. Check it out!

Recipe:
Stamps: Digital image by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Autumn)
Paper: PTI vintage cream, Stampin'Up! Soft Suede, K&CO Ghostly Greetings
Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 14 die cut, Spellbinders nested pennants die cut, Cheery Lynne Designs vine flourish die, gold gemstones, Copics
