Festive Fall

Hi there! Today is a Serendipity Stamps DT challenge day, and today we were challenged to create a shaped card. After a lot of brainstorming, a bit of grumbling (squares and rectangles are shapes!), this one came to me.

I've seen layered-oval pumpkins before, but just little ones.. so I created a supersized one for my card. I used the largest of the Petite Ovals Small from Spellbinders, cut three of them from Pumpkin Pie (of course) cardstock, and layered them. The Scarecrow Boy image was stamped onto cream cardstock and colored with Copics. The Festive Fall (on sale at Serendipity for $0.25!) sentiment was stamped, colored, and die cut and both were added to the card front.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to visit the other Design Team members playing along today to see their take on this challenge!

Have a great day!
