This card is for the Addicted to CAS challenge – Pumpkins!
I really wasn’t sure where to start so I did some scrolling through my Pinterest files. I noticed a trend in my recent pins – cards with watercolor “squish” backgrounds and frames that went off the edge. I used both of those techniques on my card.
While I do have a few pumpkin stamp sets, these elegantly flourished ones fit in the frame I chose to work with.
This is actually my second background as the first one I made was too big! Since this is a CAS challenge I wanted my elements to be contained (well, I did want a bit of bleed like I do have, but the original background took up about 70% of the card!).
Once I got the background right, the rest just fell together. I chopped up a wreath die to make the vines.
Thanks for taking a peek!
