Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. I used the FALLING LEAVES Stencil for the background image and PICK A PUMPKIN Stamps and Die from Newton’s Nook for the main image on this card.  I daubed my stencil with the colors listed below in the tools section below and misted them, and love how they turned out!  I adore stencils and this one is just wonderful!  I then stamped and cut out my pumpkins and attached everything to the front of my card.  I am submitting this card to Inspired By All The Little Things #67 Featuring Bonnie Klass, and CAS(E) this Sketch #243, and Tuesday Throwdown #364 Stenciling, and Inky Paws Challenge #57.


This is the sketch and insperations I used on this project:
