Tilda Leaves - MMSC23

I stayed up late last night making this card. It was so much fun, I just love fall leaves and I wanted to make something for the Midnight Madness week 23 challenge.

Midnight Madness is having their first Blog Hop, where you have a chance to win a fabulous prize. It is so much fun to hop to all the blogs, collect the clues and enjoy seeing all the cards that were made by so many talented artists.

For my card, Tilda was holding a bird but I put a pumpkin in it's place. The basket and rake were from a Sandylion sticker set and it helped to make the scene complete. To follow the sketch, I needed something to fan around the image and so the obvious choice for me was leaves.

Hope you like it, I would love to hear your comments.

Stamps - Tilda Bird on Hand from Magnolia, Single Pumpkin from Darcie's, Double Pumpkins from 'unknown', Sentiment from Peddlers Pack
Sticker Set - Sandylion
Punches (small leaves) - EK Success
Others: Silk Leaves, Ribbon, Spellbinder dies, Prismacolor markers

All things are heaven sent.

  13. Karen, I love how the leaves in your background look so real. Very resourceful of you to put the pumpkin in place of the bird. You can really stretch your stamping budget by doing more with your stamps this way and it is truly inspiring. What a wonderful and fabulous creation. Thanks for playing along with us this week and MMSC.
