A Little Whimsy

Playing along with the SCS Technique Lovers Challenge today and thought I would use stamps from Mark's Finest Papers called Thankful Mums and Pumpkins and Autumn Glory. The challenge called for a stacked background. I've used the leaf stamp and 7 sentiment stamps.  The pumpkins are paper pieced and I add rust raffia an a copper flower brad.

Recipe:
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers-Thankful Mums and Pumpkins (sentiments) and Autumn Glory (leaf)
Paper: PTI vintage cream, Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, green gingham (unknown)
Ink: Memento Potter's Clay, Rich Cocoa, Bamboo Leaves, and Tangelo
Accessories: Spare Parts copper flower brad, rust raffia, Tim Holtz bricked embossing folder
