OTWC Entry 2

This is my second entry for OTWC color challenge (and my favorite) Here are the colors again
and here is card two

The rundown: The pumpkin image is Hero Arts from the So Thankful set. The sentiment is from the same set but it's just a partial from a bigger saying. I stamped the pumpkins to form a wreath and them stamped 6 more on white card stock. I colored them with spiced marmalade, wild honey, and rusty hinge distress ink and my H20 pen. I cut the 6 pumpkins out and set them aside.
For the background I masked off my pumpkins and stamped the Hero Arts friend definition with vintage photo. I then blended more vintage photo over the white space.
I didn't feel like I had enough curly cues in the center so i left the masking in place a stamped a few more.
I mounted my 6 cut pumpkins on foam and adhered them over 6 of the previously stamped pumpkins for some dimension.
For the bow I just used some dmc floss and my bow easy. I wrapped it many many times :)
I adhered the panel to an olive green card base, I used the same olive green for my banner. masked and stamped my sentiment then added 3 little dots of lime green stickles. A card wouldn't be complete without glossy accents so I outlined the popped up pumpkins with it and was finished!

A long one :) thanks for riding it out to the end!
