Autumn Fun at DP2

Hi there sweet peeps! With so many Christmas cards around blogland these days I think we should not forget it's still autumn and a time to enjoy gathering all the season's goodies. That's what I've done over the past weeks. I still enjoy picking corn or gathering grapes, as long as we are all a numerous bunch and have fun! It's been a lovely time of the year. We are not much into the "pumpkin affair", as we do not celebrate Thanksgiving or Halloween but I truly enjoyed putting together this cute autumn card.

This week's challenge at Digital Pencil Too is

Autumn Fun!

How sweet is that! You will love the cards all my DT teamies have prepared for you! They are so bright and joyful!
Hope you'll like mine as well:

Here's a short explanation on how I made those pumpkins:
1. I printed different sizes of tiny pumpkins on 300 g heavy cardstock ( I used one of Mo's pumpkins to do that)
2.I colored them orange and  used a black marker to thicken the lines
3. i added glue on the orange parts and then orange decorative sand. I think they look nice:)

Here's a close-up of the fence with pumpkins and quilled flowers:


Image: Mo manning- Punkin
DP: My Minds Eye 12x12- Bloom and Grow and a few other from MME
Embellishments: quilled flowers, seam binding from WOC, wood bird, other bits and ribbon from stash
Die-cuts: Tim Holtz- Festive Greenery, Magnolia Doohikeys- lovely fence and bloomy tag, nestabilities- fancy tag

My card is for sale in my Etsy shop here.
