Grateful Pumpkin for JUGS

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

It's week number two of October and this is my Guest Design for the
Just Us Girls Challenge #701.

It's word week and the word is...

I love the different colors of pumpkins I'm seeing, but I seem to always stick with
the traditional orange color.

I've stamped a border design over the die cut pumpkin and heat embossed it then
daubed a little Tangerine ink over the edges.  An embossing pen and more gold 
embossing powder made for an elegant stem.  And a little embossing and random gold 
on a tiny leaf die cut topped this pumpkin off.

The leaf sprig was die cut from a background colored with re-inkers on a wet piece
of mixed media paper.

I hope you'll join in the Just Us Girls challenge this week.
I'm heading over at first light to see the pumpkin patch there.

Ink:   Encore Gold, Tangerine Tango
Paper:   Black, Tangerine Tango, Gold Foil, Mixed Media (Strathmore 400 series)

Such a beautiful bright pumpkin Bonnie, and lovely with the added gold pattern, leaves and stem, and the added bright and pretty die cut leaves go brilliantly, and finished with some super gems and gold embossed sentiment. The black card and added orange matted layer really make it pop. x
