Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Inspiration

Iulia has given us a beautiful Fall picture as our Inspiration for a fall color Challenge on Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week.  Here is what I created:

I love fall colors and I love to color beautifully drawn pumpkins.  I colored these Pumpkins with copics and added a border of cracked stamp and sponged edging to highlight the beautiful pumpkins. 

I had bought a beautiful pack of fall dp from Me and My Big Ideas last year and never used it so it is new this year, right?  .  I tied the plaid ribbon and tucked in some embossed leaves and some floral wires which I had used my needle nose pliers (real name HaHa) to curl the ends. I got ones with turquoise handles so my husband wouldn't take them :)  Now I need to buy pink handles screwdrivers LOL.

I added a cricut cut corner punch and button to the upper left corner and tied a wire threaded through the button as well. 

Here is the inspiration photo Iulia gave us for inspiration:

This is a beautiful bouquet and you may use any of the colors or all of them whatever you choose, but we would love to see you play along with the challenge this week.  We had wonderful participation this week and would love to see it continue !!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations for this wonderful challenge.  I know they will be a great inspiration to all of you.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!

I LOVE this. It has to be one of my favorite cards you have ever made. I really like the idea of the white pumpkin. GREAT job Cathy.

Wonderful card! I'm loving the fall colors, the "crackle" edges and the floral wire embellie -- great thinking! Also, excellent idea to go with purple handle needle nose pliers!!!

Oh Cathy!! You've nailed it again, haven't you?! Gorgeous always. And your signature fabulous ribbon! Love it! It made me laugh when I read about your turquoise needle-nose pliers! You crack me up! (Mine is pink! hahaha!) Love the fall embellies! Hugs. Pat Frank

What a beautiful clean image. It says so much. Great papers and I love your curly wires. My screwdriver, hammer and pliers are white with pink flowers on them. Hubby never touches them! Hugs, Lesley
