Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice - CTD516

 Hello, crafty friends! Today is Wednesday which means that it's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge.
For my card, I used the Hello Bluebird stamp set Autumn Gatherings along with the Autumn Gatherings dies to make a fall themed card for a friend. The little critters in this stamp set are adorable and the sentiments that coordinate are super fun. I started out by stamping the fox image along with a few leaves and a pumpkin and colored them using Copic markers, then die cut them out. I just love how when you die cut these critters, the arms die cut leaving a slot to slid in everything from a coffee to pie. I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies and die cut a white rectangle, then used some tumbled glass and peacock feathers distress inks and did a blended background. Next I die cut a piece of cream cardstock to ground my images and blended some cocoa ink along the edges and adhered that to the bottom of my rectangle. Then I adhered that to a stitched die cut rectangle of tropical teal cardstock. I added my images, popping up the fox using foam tape. I used a white card base and added a die cut stitched piece of Doodlebug Design happy harvest paper with a strip of Lawn Fawn Knit Picky teal paper toward the bottom.
