Viva La Verve.. Hello Pumpkin

Hello! Today I had a chance to make a card for one of Amber's Viva La Verve challenges! Woohoo! It's been forever since I've been able to play along... This one is for the first October challenge -- details here. I had some happy mail this week.. new Verve stamps, so it was the perfect opportunity for me!

I used the newly release Verve set, Bountiful Harvest. Julee has created some fun, whimsical pumpkins in this set and I just love them! There is a pumpkin trio as well as individuals of the pumpkins so you can paper piece, stamp them individually, etc. -- so many possibilities! I chose to use one of the pumpkin images and did a little masking so that I could stack them up. I colored them to go with Basic Grey Pyrus papers. I added some stitching and topaz rhinestones from Pizazz Aplenty.

Here's a look at the sketch and inspiration photo that I used:
