Fall Card .... as I wish for 70 degree weather when it's 98 outside now!

The heat here in VA right now is oppressive!  It's the end of September and it's 98 degrees  and we haven't had rain here at the house in weeks!  I'm getting in the mood for the change of seasons by hopping from blog to blog, enjoying the beautiful autumn card creations.  I decided to get to work myself.



I was inspired to make this card for the Jitterbuggin' Challenge.  I followed the sketch, used a cricut fall element ( the leaves I found on A Child's Year cartridge) and the pumpkin came from http://paperthisandthat.blogspot.com/2010/07/free-svg-pumpkin.html .  The "pickin punkins" came from SVGcuts.com .  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the brown mat.  One requirement was to use a plaid in the project- mine was the red ribbon. And, finally, I chalked EVERYTHING with my cat's eye chalks.
I'm also entering this in The Pink Stamper 's "Anything Goes" challenge, http://stampinsistersinchrist.blogspot.com/2010/09/challenge-57-ecclesiastes-31.html,
and http://myshericrafts.blogspot.com/2010/09/my-sheri-crafts-challenge-23-autumn.html and last but not least,
http://techniquesbytrish.blogspot.com/2010/09/welcome-to-creative-scraps-sunday.html.  So many cool challenges that my card fit!!
