 Dear Ones~
There's another challenge up over at Double D, and this time the theme is PUMPKINS. A perfect topic for October. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:
 Here is my card:
This stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps is so much fun. There are many different pumpkin sections, each with a different pattern. You can build your own pumpkin with any of the patterns for a one-of-a-kind look. I stamped on dark chocolate card stock and gold heat embossed mine. I love how it turned out. I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and colored them with Mission Gold watercolors. I have really been enjoying watercoloring lately.

The Ingredients:
GKD Dark Chocolate, Kraft & Ivory Card Stock
Honey Bee Patchwork Pumpkin Stamp Set
SU Cane Weave Embossing Folder
SSS Gold Embossing Powder
Mission Gold Watercolors
Gold Acrylic Paint

If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this absolutely adorable stamp and die set. Isn't it cute? Also, don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created.

Until next time dear readers, aspire to be inspired. 
Here's celebrating your Creative Muse!!
