Pumpkins For Sale...

Hi Friends!
How are you doing on this wonderful Friday afternoon?  I finished  my housework and laundry, so I thought I'd play along with a fun challenge over at Curtain Call Challenge!  Just look at those amazing gourds! 
Paper Sweeties is the sponsor this week for the challenge.  The lead for the challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to use in the Paper Sweeties exciting!

Here is the card that I came up with for the challenge...

I started with a cream card base and layered with MME, and Authentique papers.  I paper pieced little Abigail using the stamp set Giddyup because she is a country gal.  She needs to wear those spiffy boots to get in the field to pick all those pumpkins for the customers!:-)  She was colored with copics and die cut with Sweet Cuts.  The sentiment, wagon, and pumpkins are from the stamp set Sweeties Wagon.  The fab seam binding ribbon is also from the Paper Sweeties Shop.  The colors I used are Ambrosia Cantalope and Primrose Cookie Dough.  To finish off the card I added a button and twine.

Ok, friends, I hope you are inspired by the wonderful inspiration photo and my card to join in on the fun over at Curtain Call Challenge.  You never know you just might be the lead to receive that awesome prize to purchase some fabulous goodies in the Paper Sweeties Shop!  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!
