Cottage Cutz Stitched Pumpkins

As always, we have fabulous mood board inspiration!

Here's my "Scare-in' Up Some Pumpkins inspiration....

"It's pumpkin season"

I was especially inspired by the colors on this mood board.   The wood grain paper reminded me of old barn wood and worked well as the background for the card design. The truck image is a favorite Penny Black stamp that I fussy cut and added dimension to using foam tape.  I die cut a circle from pumpkin patterned paper and matted it with another scallop edged circle.  I cut a few vines and flourishes and tucked them in around the circle and truck.  The blues, oranges and greens are the primary colors with a touch of yellow flowers.

You can see the added dimension behind the circle and truck.  The sentiment, "it's pumpkin time" is a journaling tag from the pumpkin patterned paper collection.
