Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Pretty Pumpkins

Pumpkin Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  I'm thrilled to announce that I've been invited to join the Curtain Call's talented lineup of designers starting with today's challenge.

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.


I was inspired by the fabulous patterned pumpkins--easy to see, right?  My pumpkins were made with the Seen on Halloween dies from Lil' Inker Designs and some patterned paper scraps.  I arranged them on a cream panel with inked edges.  I was going for a rustic look . . . The "thanks" sentiment from the Just Sayin' set was stamped in black ink on a Stitched Sentiment Flag die cut, then added on top of the pumpkins. A few gold sequins completed the design.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration:
