The Kraft Journal 143 - Color Challenge

For today's Color Challenge, at The Kraft Journal, I am a sucker for the blue pumpkins you see this time of year, so I decided to use that as my starting point for today's challenge. I stamped a pumpkin image from Wplus9 onto Medium Weight Kraft cardstock with blue ink. 

I placed the pumpkin image and sentiment inside an oval cut from Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock. I then covered the card base with a beautiful piece of fall patterned paper and C-Flute Corrugated Kraft Paper which I painted with a vintage white paint and added a touch of chunky glitter. 
I then ruffled some Natural Twill Tape above the Corrugated Kraft PaperA double bow was created from brown and white checked gingham ribbon and embellished with a button and bow made from Orange and White Baker's Twine sneaking in a few paper fall leaves for further embellishing. 
Lastly I added the oval focal image and anchored it down with buttons laced with Natural Hemp Twine

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.

Ooh, what a fabulous card, Tammy! I love the prints and fall colors and LOVE all the texture on here!~ The pleated twill and glittered corrugated board is completely fabulous! Love the blue pumpkin, the leaves, and that row of buttons. The little curly-q's you made of twine are really wonderful, too!
