Patterned Pumpkin

Welcome to another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a tic-tac-toe board for you to play along with:
No automatic alt text available.
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I used the first column: Pumpkins, patterned paper and metallics.  I also used eyelets and black and white (mostly).  My card for last week's "Count Your Blessings" challenge used paper pieced pumpkins, but I just couldn't resist doing the same again this week.  I just think pumpkins are so fun with a little pattern on them.  I made this for my sister-in-law's birthday which is this week.  She is very classy and elegant, but simple and uses a lot of black and white both in her clothing in decor.  So, I went with this classy black and gray color scheme with just a pop of color from the pumpkin.  I pulled in my metallics with copper thread and eyelets.  I think this will be perfect for her.
I hope you will play along with us this week; the tic tac toe challenge allows you to create your own challenge for the most part.  So, there's no excuse!!

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Round Pumpkin" and "Happy Birthday"

Love your patterned paper on the pumpkin and the metallic thread under the focal image is perfect. You just about have the whole tic-tac-toe board covered. Great job.
