Thanks...from a li'l Pumpkin

Are you enjoying the Fall weather? I sure am! We're celebrating a Fall tradition over at The Shabby Tea Room challenge today...the Pumpkin Patch! Our sponsor is My Favorite Things and as I've said before, this stamp company is one of my favorite things. They just had a big release and this little PI girl is one of the new ones available! She is called Li'l Pumpkin.

I colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress with this Fall plaid dp from K & Co. The pumpkin is paper pieced too with pumpkin paper from the same set. I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink that fits just perfectly with this lil' pumpkin's gift! I am a fan of inking my edges and so all of mine are inked with Memento Bamboo leaves or ColorBox Chestnut roan. There is even a little piece of ruffly ribbon peeking out from the sentiment to frame it!

The sketch is from Taylored Expressions weekly sketch challenge and I used a Martha Stewart vine edge punch for the bottom of the Imaginisce Apple Cider paper. Then I layered up some more dp from the same collection and topped it off with some suede leaves and a rolled paper flower which I cut by hand and rolled myself. A few gems and the layout is complete!
