BEATE'S WEEKEND SKETCH CHALLENGE #19

I've been a lurker on Beate's blog, Fresh and Fun, for quite sometime, and have always wanted to participate in her weekend sketch challenges. I finally made time for it last night. Beate always has such wonderful layout challenges, I just don't always have the wonderful time to participate! Although I struggled with this one, I plan to return for more!


RECIPE
Stamps: Autumn Harvest (pg. 20 Holiday '07 Mini), Everyday Flexible Phrases (pg. 154).
Paper: Apple Cider DP (pg. 19 Holiday '07 Mini), Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, River Rock and Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Linen Thread, Really Rust Button, Leaf Chipboard from On Board Garland Greetings (pg. 9 Holiday '07 Mini), Brads, Hodgepodge Hardware Swirl Clip, Twill Tape
Tools: Ticket Corner Punch, Paper Piercing Tool/Mat/Template, Sanding Block
Other Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals/Foam Tape
Technique: Paper Piecing, Paper Piercing
Notes: Card measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". The pumpkins are stamped with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto Apple Cider DP, cut out, and popped up on dimensionals (paper piercing). There is linen thread tied around the stems of the pumpkins. "Happy" and "Fall" are stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on the twill tape. It's hard to see in the photo, but there are paper piercing lines on the Chocolate Chip CS horizontal strip, above and below the DP. The leaf chipboard is covered in River Rock CS, and a sanding block was used to distress the edges.
