********************Autumn Blessings JustRite 032 Challenge

With the warm autumn colors of olive, chocolate, and pumpkin the JustRite color challenge are truly the colors of Nature and evoked images of  Thanksgiving, pumpkins, etc. Let the card making begin!  I selected kraft paper to start  this card using the cornucopia image cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge.  Once cut, I used the Herringbone folder (Cuttlebug) and embossed it.  I then placed it against a plain brown cornucopia image.  Next i used Spellbinder's Pumpkin die cut to create the background pumpkin using pumpkin colored paper.  Once I had cut the large image out, I traced the outside of the die to get the shadow layer (thanks MJ for the hint!).  I sponged Stampin Up's  Appricot Appeal over the pumpkin to create a lighter image, then used copic markers (E57 & E97) to color the stem and pumpkin spines. The cornucopia/pumpkin was then mounted on a piece of Graphic 45 (Birds in Paradise). Pumpkins from the JustRite Autumn Blessing and Borders set were stamped on the pumpkin colored paper, colored with Copic markers (YG03, G23, E57 and E97), cut out, glazed with Crystal Effects, then arranged in and around the cornucopia.  Pop dots were used to give them dimension.  Elegant silk ribbon (MayArts) was used to tie the bow.  I then stamped the sentiment (JustRite Autumn Blessings and Borders) on a piece of the Graphic 45 paper and used Spellbinders oval  and scallop oval dies to create the medallion which was then placed on the ribbon.  Three Swarovski crystals (sun/topaz)were added to the upper left corner.  All was then mounted on a layer of pumpkin before being attached to the chocolate brown card base.  AFter making this card, I feel fall in the air!
