Give Thanks

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
Image may contain: food

And here is the card I created:
This was inspired by the pile of pumpkins/gourds and by some of the colors.  I stamped the wide pumpkin and created a mask for it so I could stamp the other two pumpkins on either side.  I added a small grass stamp underneath to ground them and blended on a bit of green ink to help fill in the grass.  Then I heat embossed the sentiment with versamark ink and black embossing powder.  I love how it really helps the sentiment stand out even though it's stamped directly onto the pumpkins.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Too cute - and love the sentiment on the pumpkins. I have that little grass stamp - never thought to use it to ground my image but sure will now.

Beautiful card and coloring, white space makes the image shine!

I would also love to have the time to add real stitching to my creations, but you're right, there is never enough time to do all that (especially after I've spent ages colouring!). Lovely card and fab stitched die border.
