Pumpkins, Vines, and More


CCEE1246
Vicky, at CCEE Stampers, gave us the challenge this week to do a Fall/Thanksgiving card. I got out an image I haven't used this season and just added just a tinge of color for contrast and let it be. I rather like it. I stamped a few dots and the sentiment, added a ribbon and it's finished.  Oh, and I do love this  designer paper.

We would love for you to join us this week. Just add your card with our inlinkz tool.

I'm entering my card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is Thanksgiving or Thank You.

Simply beautiful, Benz! I've never thought to do minimal coloring and it looks terrific with your striking background dp.

Hallo Benzi,
Die Blätter und das schöne Rot im Hintergrund sind ein echter hingucker. Und der Zarte Kürbis setzt dem ganzen die Krone auf.
Bei uns in Germany denkt man nicht mehr an Kürbisse Lach.... es ist schon viel zu Kalt.
Liebe Grüße Carmen
