Elegant Pumpkins

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you've had a chance to stop by and collect this awesome image from Nina at There's Magic in the Air. She's done it again with a simply "elegant" image and Leigh Anne's challenge of monochromatic was fun too! I guess I could've done green for this one, but once I saw the pumpkins I couldn't get away from orange! I'm hoping it was acceptable to use the cream color paper (instead of a white/black/gray). Here's the other deets:

Image: colored with prismamarkers, cut out with rectangle Nestie and framed with a scallop rectangle nestie in Pumpkin Pie (SU!)

Paper:  All are SU!: Pumpkin Pie (PP), Tangerine Tango (TT - embossed panel), Dusty Durango (DD - card base and is textured), and Very Vanilla (VV); patterned paper is also SU! Designer Series Paper in Tangerine Tango

Techniques:  nothing fancy for this one...bottom panel is embossed with the French Script Cuttlebug folder

Embellies/Other:  copper colored brads (source unknown), Orange Cream satin ribbon (from wally world)

Layout: is from Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Sketch Challenge #252

Thanks for coming by and can't wait to come by your blog/gallery to see what you come up for this challenge! Aloha, Kim
