Punkin Patch


The new Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential started this week and their first challenge is to make a halloween card without a halloween image stamp ... so I decided to make pumpkins out of buttons ... I cut out my own stem stamp and stamped them with some leaves around where the buttons would be and used a stampin up stamp for the punkin patch sign and drew around everthing with a black marker ... I like how it turned out ... the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges is stitching and besides the cardstock I used having stitching on it I stitched around the circle I punched for the owl to peak through and around the pumpkins. The challenge at Stampin B's Design Team is to use a pumpkin on your card ... I think these qualify! And lastly the Pile It On Challenge is of course to do more than one challenge and to add something 3-D on your project!
