The Kraft Journal 139 - Color Challenge

For today's color challenge at The Kraft Journal, I found that using a piece of designer paper from my stash was a perfect jumping off point and added it to a card base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.  Next I added a doily to the center to mat the main focal image. I die-cut a pumpkin and leaf from Wplus9 from Kraft Text Weight Paper which I stamped to coordinate.
At the top of the focal point, I tied a bow with brown and white baker's twine and embellished with an orange button. 
I stamped the sentiment in the upper right top corner. 

On the left side, two banners were cut from paper that coordinates with the main patterned paper used. I took a piece of patterned paper to cover a Chipboard Flag Piece to add to the top of the other two banner pieces. 

Lastly, I added a variety of flowers in a cluster and a fall leaf to the lower left corner embellishing further with a brown satin bow and a sunflower.

Here is this week's Color Challenge photo.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other gals.  We hope to see your Color Challenge creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also joining in at Craftin' Desert Divas - Autumn/Fall, Link Up Tuesday - Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, Little Scrap Pieces - Fun Friday Linky Party, Just B Creative - Just Because Linky Party.

Have a wonderful week!
