Love White Pumpkins

As I sat down to play with the Card Concept challenge, I knew this would give me to chance to use some white pumpkins.  
 I pulled out a set of stamps with matching dies from My Favorite Things for my two pumpkins.  There were stamped in white and embossed with white on watercolor paper.  I gave these shapes a little bit of color with Tea Dye Distress Stains so they would be defined a little bit.  
 To go along with the Card Concept photo inspiration piece, I created a distressed background with a honeycomb stencil and more Distress Stains.  The wreath is a stamp and die from Simon Says Stamp, again stamped with white and embossed with white.  I colored this piece with blue Distress Stains so it fits the photo inspiration.  The layout of the entire card was inspired with the Freshly Made sketch for this week.  
 Here is the Freshly Made sketch.

This also fits the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of Thanks or Thanksgiving.
