Color Challenge .....{TKJ #139}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week the challenge is:
A Color one based on this gorgeous picture!

And here is my inspiration! Sure hope you like it!!
I started my card out with a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock  and covered it with a layer of designer paper from Recollections~ Harvest Delight Paper Pack. Then using some burlap I had in my stash I attached it to my card using a zig zag pattern stitch on my sewing machine. Next for the pumpkins I brought out my Cottage Cuts Pumpkin Trio dies and die cut 2 of the different pumpkins using matching designer papers also from the Harvest Delight Paper Pack. For the leaves, I used another one of my favorite dies~ the Stitched Leaf Die from My Creative Time and some beautiful wool felt from my stash. To finish off my pumpkins, I used matching brads from Recollections and some Earthy Hemp Cord.
Finally to complete my card I used a Tim Holtz Memo Pin, stuck it in between the pumpkins and through the burlap, die cut the tag using a piece of Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and stamped the sentiment from My Creative Time~ Piles of Smiles stamp set.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
