7 Kids College Fund Challenge #4: Sketch with a Fall theme!

Hello all!

Welcome to another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!  This wee, we're asking you to create a fall themed creation using the wonderful sketch that Suzanne Dean has cooked up.  Make sure you visit the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog to play along! We have a great prize this week, but you must use a stamp that is carried by the 7 Kids store to be eligible.

For this card, I've used one of the newest CC Designs stamps called Fall Scene.  I love these pumpkins!  They're so homely.  It was the perfect time, too, to use some of this DCWV paper that I've had for a very long time along with a raffia that I've had since last fall :)  I used a variety of flowers from Prima and Wild Orchids.  The image is colored with distress reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush from Sakura.  The circle was cut out with Nestabilities and the embossing folder used for it was the Birds and Swirls embossing folder.

Stamp: CC Designs Fall Scene
Coloring Medium: Distress Reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush
Paper: DCWV Indian Summer
Accessories: Prima flowers, Wild Orchid flowers, raffia
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Birds and Swirls embossing folder, Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun
