Perfect Sentiments: "Fall or Halloween with a Pop of Color"

Another Wednesday and time for another challenge at The Perfect Senitment!
This week the challenge is "Fall or Halloween with a Pop of Color"
The challenge: create a card with a fall or Halloween sentiment
The twist: use all neutral tones and add just a pop of color
Here is the card I created for this challenge:

My card is 4"x8 1/2."  I used brown cardstock for the card base.  I then trimmed some brown striped cardstock at 3 3/4"x8 1/4."  I cut another piece of brown cardstock at 3 1/2"x8."  Finally, I cut some pale tan houndstooth cardstock at 3 1/4"x7 3/4."  I used the Thanksgiving cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to cut the pumpkin and sprig of wheat.  The wheat was cut at 3" and the pumpkin at 2."  I covered the pumpkin in crackle accents.  The sentiment and the curly frame around it are both Peachy Keen stamps.  They are stamped in rich cocoa ink by Tsukineko.  I cut around the frame and adhered it to the card with pop-dots.  I finished off the card with three pale orange pearls.
Hope you join us at The Perfect Sentiment for our challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create!    


  1. Beautiful card, Paula! Love the die cuts and that sentiment stamp is wonderful. I have to think about longer cards. I get stuck in a rut of A2 cards and forget there are other sizes just as effective. Love this one!

  2. i like the shape of your card, the sentiment & the sparkly pumpkin!!

  3. I like the idea of using the crackle paint on the pumpkin. Makes it really pop !!
