Pals Paper Arts #176 & The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #188

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is for two challenges – the Sketch Challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the Fall Themed Challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.

I love playing along with the challenges at Pals Paper Arts, especially when Margaret has created one of her fabulous sketches.


In addition to the Fall Themed Challenge, the Design Team at The Shabby Tea Room have given us the challenge of adding pumpkins and a stamped sentiment.  I don’t have any pumpkin stamps as we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, so I decided to make some pumpkins out of oval punches.  I’ve seen lots of these on pinterest so the idea for them wasn’t mine – I did however make Very Vanilla ones daubed with Sahara Sand instead of orange ones.  As I don’t have anyone to give my card to, I would normally shy away from challenges like these, but I wanted to challenge myself and give it a go.


The papers I’ve used are retired Stampin’ Up! ones that I had lying around on my desk and hidden away in my drawers – Bella Rose DSP, Kiwi Kiss DSP and Spice Cake DSP.  Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
