Simon Says........Autumn/Fall Colors

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme is Autumn/Fall Colors, and the team is playing with Honey Bee goodies this week!  I chose a gorgeous fall die set called Fall Bouquet.  It not only includes this pretty pumpkin, but also a canning jar, and a lovely variety of fall leaves and flowers.

supplies: cream parchment, kraft, Sunshine, Orange Peel, Schoolhouse Red, Lipstick Red, Burnt Orange, Dark Chocolate, and 2 green cardstock, wood plank dp from SN@P Wood & Notebook Basics, Honey Bee Fall Bouquets, antique linen distress ink and distress marker, finger dauber, Simon Autumn Blessings die, adhesive foam squares to lift pumpkin arrangement above base

I remember when I first saw these white pumpkins - love at first sight, so that was my first decision made.  I cut the pumpkin from some creamy parchment cardstock, then enhanced the embossed details with antique linen distress ink and a distress marker.  Then I just filled it with a selection of the leaves, adding a pod and some acorns, and only 1 of the many floral dies in this set.  I bent up the petals on the flowers for some dimension, and also popped up the whole arrangement from the base.  The die-cut sentiment couldn't be more perfect - love the delicate font!

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate 

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
