Be thankful

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a sketch challenge (my favorite!) for you:
I know I used a paper pieced pumpkin only a few weeks ago for our challenge inspiration, but they're just so cute that I had to do it again!  I actually had one left over from the last card and I was planning to use it on this card, but alas, I couldn't find it.  Which is not a big surprise considering the disaster that is my craft area.  So, I stamped and cut out two more and added some adorable leaf and vine die cuts from a brand new die I bought recently.
I LOVE how this turned out!  The papers are all from an Authentique paper pack and most of them were scraps which are always fun to use up.  Once again, I selectively inked up part of my sentiment stamp to use only the part I wanted.  I hope you'll get a chance to play along; this really is a fabulous sketch.  And if you NEED these adorable pumpkins (or any other stamp from Repeat Impressions for that matter) check out the 10% off your entire order code on my left sidebar.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Tall Pumpkin", "Wide Pumpkin" and "Let Us . . ."
Dies: Spellbinders "Floral Ovals"; MFT "Ornate Corners" and "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle ; pumpkin leaves (can't think of the maker right now)

Challenges:
Craft Your Passion #331--anything goes
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #248--anything goes with snippets (all the papers were scraps except the brown card base and the patterned paper base layer.  The corner bracket was left over from another project)
Di's Digis--ribbon, lace or twine
Sweet Stampin'--buttons and/or ribbons
Fussy & Fancy #173--my favorite things (I used my favorite die--the stitched rectangle-- and my favorite embellishments: ribbon and rhinestones)
Brown Sugar #217--anything goes
The Paper Girls #112--nature
Alphabet Challenge--O is for Oval (oval die cut)
The Divas That Cut--fall theme
