Card Design: FBD Pumpkin Patch Challenge Reminder

Hello and happy Wednesday my friends!  It is time to bring you all some freshly brewed inspiration to perk up the middle of your week.  Today starts the second week of our latest challenge going on over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  Right now we are halfway through our Pumpkin Patch Challenge which means you have one more week to get your entries in.  It is the perfect time to be creating for this challenge.  With the fall season in full bloom in most parts of North America and Hallowe'en and the American Thanksgiving coming up at the end of November, there are lots of opportunities to be making cards with pumpkins on them.  So get those pumpkin projects done during the next week and then make sure that you enter our challenge with one for a chance to win!!!

  1. This challenge ends Tuesday, October 28th.
  2. You can enter up to 5 times with your NEW creations (no back linking please).
  3. If you use an FBD image, please add FBD to the end of your name.
We will be awarding one overall monthly lucky winner a future guest designer spot as well as awarding one winner in each challenge, 3 Digital Stamps.  Plus a US resident will be chosen to win a small blog candy.  For all the challenge details including the link up, please click HERE.  

Here is a card that I have created to help inspire you... 

Digital Image Details:
  • The Great Pumpkin:  This image is currently available in the FBD store.  You can find it by clicking on the image watermark below.  It was coloured with Copic markers.
  • The buttons are from a selection purchased at the Dollar Tree.
  • The ribbon is Crafts brand purchased at Dollarama.
  • The pennant shapes were made from some fall papers I created.  Link below.

Digital Sentiment:
  • Once again I have found the perfect sentiment from my fabulous selection of sentiments from Create with TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card, image and sentiment base:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.

Digital Paper Products:  
  • I've used three of my own digital papers for this card.  Two in the pennants mentioned above and the third is the leaf paper used on the front and inside.  It is one of my favourites because it almost looks like an oil painting.  You can find each of these papers still available as freebies, plus two others in the same post, by clicking HERE.
Challenges I hope to enter...
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I hope you have the chance to go and check out The Great Pumkin image I used, along with all the other great images available in the store.

Oh and please note that we are having a special 5 Days of Christmas release starting next Monday.
If you are looking for more fresh brewed inspiration, be sure to pop by again next Wednesday when I'll be back to showcase a card made with a fabulous new Christmas image.

At Fresh Brewed Designs we always have a fresh pot of creativity brewing. So stop by and join us for a cuppa whenever you want!


Until next time,
