Just Us Girls #150


Good morning and welcome to my third week as Guest Designer for the fabulous Just Us Girls challenge!  This week is a colour challenge - warm fall colours with a pop of blue.  I dug deep into my Unity stamp collection and found these sweet pumpkins from the September 2010 Kit of the Month. I paper pieced them and popped them up on some Pop Dots and added woodgrain debossing to the card base to complete the rustic feel.  Ready to play along? First pop over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the design team and then get to work!  You have until 9pm EST on Thursday, 23 August.

Cardstock: (Kraft) Gina K, (Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Pumpkins & sentiment from Sept '10 KOM - When I Am With You) Unity
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Impression Plate:  (Woodgrain) PTI

Beautiful use of the challenge colors! When I first saw the colors, I thought that it would be difficult to make a card using so many bold colors. But...you've done it perfectly!
