Apples and Pumpkins

Hello friends and welcome to another {Pin}spirational Challenge.

It's finally feeling a little like Fall especially in the mornings when the air is crisp and cool.  Of course, it's still getting up into the 80's during the daytime, so Summer isn't quite done with us yet.  I can't believe that Halloween is just right around the corner.  This week we have another fun challenge for you.  One of the things I love about these challenges is that you can take it in so many different directions having a picture for inspiration.  Here is the photo
Isn't that a gorgeous picture.  For my card though, I went with the Fall colors of the leaves and the background.

Our sponsor this week who kindly let us use a few of their digital images is Squigglefly.
There are some really great images over at their store.  The image that I chose to use for my card is called Apples and Pumpkins.
It took me some doing, but I was finally able to get the colors and shading the way I wanted it.  I thought this would be a fun image to work with.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Squigglefly - Apples and Pumpkins
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Day of Gratitude
  • Ink - Stampin Up - Pumpkin Pie
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Apple Cider
  • Accessories - Ribbon and Brads - from my stash
  • Copic Markers - E11, E23, E33, R22, R27, R39; YR04, YR09, YR16, YR20, YR24; YG11, YG61, and YG63
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT to see their interpretation of this challenge.  You can find links on my sidebar or just pop on over to the {Pin}spirational Challenge blog.  Have a great week!
