Today's colors are rich and so pretty together as we transition from summer into autumn. And autumn comes earlier to some of us than others. Our colors are Turquoise and Orange, with White OR Ivory as your netural and as always, adding Black for a little POP is totally OK, but not required.

Try as hard as I could my picture just didn't come out well I think.
But you get the jist of it! The colors are similar.

I used Hawaiian Shores and Terra Cotta cardstock from PTI, with a little black of course.
The designer paper is from my bit bin. I am always rummaging around to find things that I can use and I thought it went well.
The sentiment is from PTI as well and the pumpkin is from Cuttlebug, cut out, and then run through again with a texture plate from PTI to give it a little something extra and then a little walnut stain distress ink.
I just used a fine top marker around the edges as well.

I know I say this every time, but I always find it so flabbergasting how so many people can take one inspiration picture and come up with such a diverse collection of cards. Yours is awesome!!
Hope all's well at your end!
