ColourQ111, Monkey82 & OCCC


Happy Tuesday!  Happy ColourQ Day!  Check out this gorgeous wreath that inspired Arielle today:

cqc111 I resisted the urge to make a card with a wreath on it—that would have been fun, though!  I chose instead a basket—a picnic basket---full of pumpkins!  Here we go:


I used the sketch from A la Card Monkey this week:

Monkey82 Anything Goes-001

as well as the theme from Our Creative Corner, which is pumpkins—either the color or the fruit!  I stamped my pumpkins on Shimmery White cardstock and my basket on some retired Crumb Cake Prints paper:

DSCF9501 I colored them with reinkers, then added four French knots with SU Linen thread.  Embossing, a button and a little sentiment from the retired Give Thanks set finished it off:


And the inside:


I hope you’ll find some inspiration in these colors and play along with us at the ColourQ this week!  And here’s my little milky-mouthed blessing:
