Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Glittery Gourds

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for The Challenge! ***

Thankful for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs


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.

Thankful for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea DesignsI took my inspiration from both the pumpkins and the shiny gold in the inspiration photo.  My photos are gold "dipped," thanks to a little partial heat embossing on the stitched pumpkin die cuts.  I arranged the pumpkins on a kraft woodgrain panel using foam tape for dimension.  The pumpkins are paired with the "thankful for you" sentiment from the SugarPea Designs Bountiful Blessings stamp set.  The words were stamped in gold to go with the shiny pumpkins.

I adhered the woodgrain panel to a cream cardstock panel layered on to an orange card base.  To bring in more gold, I tucked a gold circle underneath the left edge of the woodgrain panel.  A trio of gold sequins scattered around the pumpkin completed the design.

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