Five Challenges-Thanksgiving

I can tell Thanksgiving is on the way. We had rain finally this week (along with some really, nasty tornado type weather). We were desperate for rain and now that it has come, the leaves are beginning to really show their beautiful,  Autumn colors.
As hostess this week of the Stampin B's Design Team, I gave the challenge to make a Thanksgiving card/project using pumpkin images. I just love pumpkins and going to the pumpkin patch. Aren't they great for little ones...all kinds of rides, face painting, games galore, and choosing just the right pumpkin/pumpkins
If you choose to upload to Splitcoaststampers, put in the keyword StampinB.

This was my first tent card and it was really fun. I found the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. It is in the resource section. I did a search for 'tent cards' and found the instructions. I stamped my pumpkins, water colored them, cut out,  and attached one inside. I made my cut out and frame with two circle nestabilities, one just a size larger than the other.

Other challenges I'm entering with this card:
A Spoonfull of Sugar #127 Let's Get Punchy - use die cuts or punches
Paper Garden Projects  Fourth Friday Challenge - Holiday Cards
Tip Top Tuesday #7  Anything Goes Challenge

Also, I'm in a fun group on Splitcoaststampers called Punchkateers and we have decided to start having challenges. This is the 2nd one and it is to use die cuts or punches. So, this card fits that challenge perfectly.

Stamps: Stampin'Up! Autumn Harvest
Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, K&CO Specialty Paper-Fall Harvest, Canson watercolor paper
Accessories: Two sizes of  Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities, Tombow markers, Brad is Recollections

Wonderful fall card, love the colors.
I am with you about the cold blistery weather, most of our leaves are off the tree after the winds and tornado. We must live close.
Thank you for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday. this week
