Hi there stampers! I created today's card for Create with Connie and Mary's newest sketch challenge #530. It also takes in The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #412. I went with the straight across the middle combo of ribbon, pumpkin, and embossing, but I see I could also use left top diagonal with leaves, pumpkin, and sequins or glitter! I love tic-tac-toe challenges!
I went with a punch art pumpkin that I embossed with the Cable Knit TIEF and sponged. I fussy cut the little stem from a scrap of Soft Suede CS. The long panel is a Tin Tile TIEF embossed piece of Gray Granite with some Gray Granite sponging to bring out the tiles. It's backed by a piece of Copper foil.
Let's talk about the ribbon for a moment, shall we? Oh. My. Goodness. Have you ever seen such beautiful, elegant ribbon? I think it's so gorgeous! Coppery on one side and all Merry Merlot on the other. I'm in love with Merry Merlot and know it's gonna be one of my favorite Christmas colors.
I zig-zagged the the ribbon onto the left side of the Gray Granite panel and arranged some leaves and sprigs punched from some Joyous Noel glimmer paper in copper and Merry Merlot. I popped my pumpkin up on top of it all and added a Braided Linen trim bow. The sentiment is also embossed with copper embossing powder.
