What a Beautiful Blessing You Are...

 Today is my one and only sister's birthday!!  What a beautiful blessing she is to me!!  This card was made for her and it was inspired by 4 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC544 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was the starting point for today's card and it worked perfectly with 3 other challenges that I used.

Addicted to Stamps & More // #ATSM455 ...A technique challenge!!  Use either die cuts or stencils.  I decided to use die cuts for today's card.

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS423 ...An inspiration challenge!!  Let the collage of photos they have grouped together be your inspiration.  My inspiration was the textured pumpkins and the color combination.

INKspirtional Challenges // #IC299 ...A CAS challenge with an optional movie twist.  I picked a Hallmark movie...October Kiss.  Pumpkin spice and everything nice...the perfect time of year for romance to be in the air!!  You know...those bonfires, crisp cool weather perfect for cuddling, leaves are falling, and hearts are warming!!  Pure romance!!

  6. Love the embossing on your pumpkin pieces Deb and all the lovely die cut flourishes. The red plaid looks great with the black/white! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational: CAS and being inspired by a movie! Julia xx
