Pumpkin Harvest

Hi there, one more for me today 🙂  When I think of fall, the first thing that comes to mind is pumpkins, quickly followed by Halloween and colorful leaves.  This image from Ching-Chou Kuik, called Pick a Pumpkin, perfectly showcases two of these themes 🙂  I colored this beauty up with my Prismacolor pencils, then sat wondering about the layout….  I came across this sketch

at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, and was immediately inspired.  I embossed some yellow core Black Magic paper with a Sizzix folder, then sanded it to bring out the design.  The fence was cut with a die (I can’t remember who made it) from a scrap of black CS.  I cut 2 pieces of burlap for the elements tucked behind the image.  I knew I wanted some pumpkins to finish off this card, but I don’t have a pumpkin die, and when I went to Michael’s, I just couldn’t find the right thing!! I was feeling rather discouraged, until I went through one of my sticker folders and found a sheet of pumpkin stickers!! They had the ugly white edges on them, though, so I stuck them to a piece of CS and carefully cut around them to get the effect I wanted.  I’m so happy with the finished product, and glad that I didn’t let a few stumbling blocks along the way discourage me completely!

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:
