Pumpkin Patch! { another $1 M's stamp! }

When our children were young, we always looked forward to a trip to the local pumpkin patch in the fall. They would enjoy selecting the perfect pumpkin to carve for Halloween and then they would run and play amidst the fallen leaves. Good times & great memories!

This darling paper by Adorn-It is appropriately named "Pumpkin Patch". I've layered in onto some bright green paper by DCWV and zig-zagged the edges. The base cardstock is pumpkin pie by Stampin Up.

This image is another $1 Michaels wood-mounted rubber stamp. I've stamped it in basic black and colored the circles with my Stampin Up pumpkin pie marker. The corners and edges were highlighted with green prismacolor pencils and blended in with gamsol. The orange ribbon with yellow dots is from a micro spool by Offray.

I've got another pumpkin card in the works today, so stay tuned for more! Smiles, Pam :)

It is always so fun to see how you'll color an image and create a card around even the smallest of images. Again, you've wow-ed me!

I never think to color the backgrounds of stamps like this particular one. What you do adds such depth and dimension.

Such a fun pumpkin patch card! :)
