Vintage Autumn Botanical Card with CTMH Mischief and Background-Charmed

Hello, my name is Paige and I am a sucker for anything with Pumpkins on it.  There is just something so cheery about those big orange gourds!

It all started when I was a kid and we grew pumpkins for wholesale and retail sale.  We had a couple of acres and my Dad paid us by the hour for planting, hoeing, harvesting and 10% of our individual retail sales.  Yep, I always had a good stash of Christmas money each year!


When I saw the adorable new stamp set "Background-Charmed" in the new Idea Book it went to the top of my must-get list.  Not only does it have an awesome graveyard with bats scene but it has this gorgeous botanical pumpkin scene as well.  I inked it up in Sunset and did some rock-and-rolling in Chocolate ink.



I used the brown striped paper in our new Mischief set and one of our new Pin Clips to showcase the sentiment tucked into the ribbon.  The diamond paper is just Chocolate cardstock with the diamond stamp from "All Hallow's Eve" in Chocolate on top, shabbied up with a bit of sanding.

I finally finished my artwork boards for my upcoming Open House so I've lots more to share over the next couple of weeks!  Now I'd best get off the computer so my kids can get in the pool!

Thanks for stopping by today!
